When you click on the youtube link in the post creation field you need to enter the code after the = symbol in the youtube URL.

Like this.

Refueling a B1 must be difficult. Look at all the scrape marks on the nose around the receptacle.

Boomer, if your reading, is the B1 harder to refuel than other aircraft?

Zaph, there's a video version of the photo's on F-16 net under the F-22 forum with about the same title as this thread.

They're saying it has to be a drone as it's a very slow pass....

What's your take on it?

It's pretty hard to estimate the velocity if you don't know whether the aircraft is at 10,000 or 60,000 feet.

You can get unbelievablely clear imagery at either altitude at high velocity with aircraft flying now that aren't black.

If it's the one rumored it isn't technically black. More a dark grey.

Random things make it around the grapevine on things flying around. There are some interesting programs around here.


Just pointing out as well, optics and stabilization have gotten pretty good that high or low altitude and high or low speed is pretty good at being a moot point anymore.

Yeah there are. I just heard about a wild one off the other day.

Yeah even over ten years ago optics improvements are insane.

My only point was that people are saying "this must be a drone because it is moving so slowly", but you can't estimate the velocity very clearly without knowing the altitude...

Using B1Bs in Syria as well? just seen this uploaded to Twitter with the poster saying they spotted it over Kobane, the town currently under attack from IS

They've been using them from the start in Iraq.

Thnx, where are they basing them out of? surely you can't land one of those on a carrier?

They can fly them out of five or six areas including bases in the US. They'd have to land and swap crews to get back but they could do it.

I know they used to fly out of Al-Udeid Air Base Qatar. You would know better than I if they still do.
