Operation Hercules - TOPGUN style!

Hey everyone!


Hope you are all enjoying the awesome FNF that @MishaCamp has made! I don’t fly military a lot, but since I absolutely loved the theme of this FNF, I decided to do some flying in the KC-10. I absolutely love this plane, it handles like a beauty! Anyways, I did a lot of aerial formation and refueling today, and that makes for some amazing photos and angles! Edited in snapseed and Lightroom. Enjoy.

Cheers man, much appreciated!

If only the MIG jets were added to IF, that’s how you really go inverted with a Tomcat. Great pictures anyway, mate! Gotta love those F-14s no matter if you like military or not ;)
