Like they did for the Khadafi's HQ during Operation El Dorado Canyon in 1986. I really like this livery, that would not be the livery European One ?

Wonder why they paint the bottom half of the engines white?

Great! think of how much weight transfer is going on here. the top pilot compensating for his a/c getting lighter, the bottom pilot needing more and more power!

A bunch of great comments for such a fantastic shot! The olive/green on white is so when you look up from the ground it's harder to see. And, the weight and balance changing so rapidly, wow!

Has there ever been a 3 way tanker refueling? I mean from a KC-10 to another KC-10 to a F-4 or something like that... that would be so cool
