What a view. Here’s a KC-135 Stratotanker refueling a F-15 in the air from the perspective of the air tanker. Actually, it’s almost like seeing the whole process from the perspective of the boom, as we see the probe arm reach into the receptacle. It’s such an awesome angle.
The US Air Force says:
A KC-135 Stratotanker from the 100th Air Refueling Wing refuels an F-15E Strike Eagle from the 48th Fighter Wing Nov. 12, 2015, over the northern Mediterranean. While deployed to Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, both wings will work together in support of Operation Inherent Resolve and counter-Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant operations in Iraq and Syria.
