Not much to add to this majestic video. Just figured I would share with the aircraft enthusiasts.

Damn thing looks like it just floats in the air. Some great engineering there.

I am surprised Boomer hasn't jumped onto this thread. I'm pretty sure he has refueled these himself.

LEE.

I've got a question regarding the b2 and it's probably a pointless question. What are the three dark panels just below the cockpit windows .. They just seem to grab my interest for whatever reason I can't describe. Also I love how the refuelling inlet flips over when finished with almost as if it doesn't exist ha nice vid

Air Data Computer input ports. Pitot tubes are RCS magnets, so they put them flush against the airframe.

Turbulence or just pilot error?

Pilot error. He had too high a closure rate, then went into PIO when he tried to breakaway.

I see no second approach. Did they just say forget it, or circled around.

IIRC they came up again and refueled successfully.

My guess: Went back to base to change drawers, then come around to try it again.
