I wonder how they managed this. There are (?) limitations to how much pressure you can put in aircraft fuel tanks so I don't suppose the fuel can be 'forced' in.

I remember doing operational quick turn arounds on Phantoms many years ago. They would be re-armed very quickly and the only hold up was waiting for the fuel to be topped up. Getting the aircraft back in the air as soon as posssible has to be an operational bonus. A good idea from the Army at last Big grin

At least you still have them...
Dutch AF will loose a third from next year, and I fear more reductions will follow soon (there's precious little else left to cut...).



I wish I were flying
