My family and I were outside in the yard about a month ago. I happened to look up and saw a tanker refueling a fighter. Looked like a KC-10. (After seeing it I had to view several photos to make that determination) This is something I have never seen before or since. Do they usually do training exercises like that in areas like this?
I am in the Knoxville area.
It truly was a sight to behold.

I couldn't get a great look at it as it was flying near the sun, but it looked a lot like either an SU-27 or MiG-29. I'm leaning towards the first, but was wondering if anyone has any information about any Russian fighters flying in the Georgia/Alabama/Tennessee area.
