Had the opportunity to go up with the Missisippi Air National Guard today on their KC-135 to see them refuel one of our B-52s. Pretty cool thing to watch from their perspective.

I've been on both ends of that refueling. It's gets scary on the B-52 end when the boom comes about 2 feet over the hatch windows. I'd sit in the IP seat between the pilots so it went right over my head. My seat cushion would have a bump in it afterwards. It's amazing that those two huge planes can fly so close together. Thanks for the pictures. Brings back memories.
