Get ready for some great photos from an impromptu refueling operation off the North-eastern Australian coast. Huge thanks to @Usman_A and @AnonymouslyAnonymous who are both featured in these photos, and also for the ramp shots with extra company from @GBKarp — great flight today everyone!
For flight details, feel free to look at my post in the Refueler’s tracking thread. We based out of YAMB (RAAF AMBERLEY) for a two-hour op north of Brisbane airspace.
And now, for the showcase of some serious military hardware

Easy does it

Which one is your favorite? This was the first time I had trouble with the 10 photo limit.
