Shot from Skyvan G-BEOL, Esso 77 poses gracefully over the south of the Netherlands. This is what the Air-to-air Academy can lead to! Thank you Eric Coeckelberghs, Frank Crébas and all pilots involved.

Very nice photo. I don't understand the refuleing system though. It's a boom AND a cone? How is that possible?

THe drogue is only attached to the nozzel. Unlike the KC-10 it can do one or the other, not both

I'm amazed the Skyvan could move fast enough to stay outta the way! Great capture.

One of my favorite shots on a.net. It's been 10 years since I last flew the tank and I think of my 13 years flying her everyday. Incredible airplane with flawless lines. This one is 48 years old and still as graceful and beautiful as every. Thanks for many fond memories. - Brett
