This USAF Instructor Boom Operator, prepares to conduct air refueling with a C-5 Galaxy at FL250 off the the California coast. The three primary gauges provide the Boom Operator with boom elevation, telescope(in/out), and roll(left/right). The joystick on the left control's the telescoping of the boom. The right stick is what directs the flight control surfaces used to "fly" the boom in the other axes. The KC-10A provides the boom operator with a spacious prone seating position as opposed to the KC-135.

As a plane spotter since I was a kid....I'm jealous. A C-5 Galaxy? OMG! Imagine the views he sees at his job. What a skilled professional!
