This reminds me the old question Do doctors ever get sick? Here, the question is Do tankers ever need refueling? (Ali Aminzadeh)

I see boom operator photos on here all the time. This has to be a first: a tanker shot from a tanker. Very nice!

Clarity is amazing. But what's the point of refueling a tanker? Why wouldn't you just use the source tanker instead of offloading to a new one?

I get the "10 on 10" but what does "balls eighty" mean?
compass heading?

I think "balls 80" is a reference to the A/C number above the windscreen "0080" - or "balls" eighty?

"Balls 80" refers to the tail number, but I always called her "thirty-eighty". With WAR pods, very nice. Helped maintain this beauty from 2011-2014. 60th MXG.
