Came across this interesting read today. Here's a history of air refueling from the beginning along with some pretty cool stories. The F-117 story
is similar to a mission I'm proud to have been apart of!
Interesting to note is the apparent lack of tanker knowledge in the first Gulf War. Just because we have to know our SIOP/8044 mission cold, we also
have to deal with conventional war as well. Wonder if this was written by a fighter jock?
