Default Refuelling $100 million Fighter Jet

Thought you would all like to see this, all at 300knots, and lots of Nectar points too

To me this one takes the cool award. Of course I'm a little biased.

Those airplanes, this actual group, are based at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah, once in a while you can see one of them around here in flight. It made all the local newscasts when the Air Force announced that the whole squadron would be going overseas at once for training purposes with NATO countries..

I can personally attest to how bad it sucks to be on a C-5 during a mid air refueling. Talk about the vomit comet. I'm not one who gets airsick but the smell of 20 people yacking is a smell I'd like to forget.
