VIDEO: F-35A Refueling Hook Up

RSS

Anyone thirsty? Here's an interesting video I shot Wednesday of an F-35A from Edwards AFB, California, topping off during Green Flag hosted at Nellis AFB, Nevada. This is an exercise designed to train air crews and ground controllers directing ground fires in close air support missions. The refueling took place around 22,000 ft. from a KC-135 from MacDill AFB, Florida over the Nevada skies.
