As military day was coming to an end, @AdamCallow decided to do some aerial refueling over KCOS before heading off to Europe, and naturally, I volunteered to be the tanker. I circled for a bit around KCOS while Adam spawned in and readied his FPL, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect as the sun began to set. Here’s some pictures from our short (but fun) aerial refueling adventure. Enjoy!
Adam’s Route: KCOS-LIMC
My Route: KCOS-KCOS
Flight Time: 1 hour
Circling KCOS and waiting for Adam to catch up.

Final bit of topping off before Adam leaves me for LIMC.
Refueling complete. Enjoying the sunset with a brief bit of formation flying before we split. Wing rocks were exchanged, and my paycheck received.
C-130 goes gulp gulp gulp.
Messed around with the time and tried to get a moonshot for the fun of it.
Thanks for viewing! I hope y’all enjoyed the photos :)
