This Hornet from NAS Point Mugu, joined up with our KC-10A for a little drogue work off of the beautiful Southern Californa coastline. The unique paint scheme and venting from the vertical stabs made for a unique photo opportunity.

Really nice effect with the venting from the stabilizers. I suppose that is air making room for the incoming jet fuel?

It's a great shot, indeed. Although I believe that the effect is fuel being dumped.

This photographer has 1. the best "vantage point" in the world to get great A/C shots; 2. a very good camera and an even better lens, (which is incredibly sharp); and 3. he really knows how to use it! The comments add a lot of interest to the photo......now if we could just get everyone to add interesting comments with their photos?
