Now That Is Precision

Last week @Colderco posted on the Refuelers Tracking Thread that he was going to be on station above the East China Sea… seeing the opportunity, I decided to jump in the F-22 for some refueling practice out of Kadena Air Base (RODN). With a roughly 50 knot crosswind, the challenge was on to not only engage the simulated refuel, but actually fully replicate the real process. But I’ll let the unedited photos speak for themselves.
