lol! "its like an evil water wiggle, only with gas." i think we just found our sales pitch.... the new water wiggler!!!! WITH GAS :D WARNING: do not smoke while playing with evil water wiggle, do not opperate heavy machinery while using water wiggle, water wiggle is not a source of fuel for any vehicle and should not be used as such, open flames are not water wiggles friend, do not drink water wiggle fluid, stop drop and roll procedures are found in the manual about syphoning the water wiggle.

I`d like some windshield wipers, please. Yes, jet-sized. What, you don`t have jet-sized? Then how the heck am I supposed to clean my jet`s windshield in mid-flight?!

"For those of you saying what a waste of fuel! Obviously you`d rather the jet crews crash and die than refuel in mid air and land safely!"

"if the jet was in a war and the purpose of the flight was to kill anyone, yes."

Even if the mission saved a million lives by killing one terrorist?

I wince at the fuel in the air. That stuff can`t be cheap. Bad enough gas here is $3.40/gallon!

A. I`m almost 100% sure they were flying over water, aside from it just looking like that (which can be deceiving sometimes), most refuels happen over water , so they didn`t start a fire most likely

B. Did any of you perchance see how long that hose was? The boom operator almost certainly did shut it off as soon as it ripped, what spewed out was just the fuel that was in the hose (normally the attachment at the end would stop that fuel from coming out I assume)

That`s an expensive Oopsie. Does that come out of anyone`s paycheck? ....

oh right, mine! :-P

Looks like Jet A is going for $6.02 at the airport nearest to my house .... I wonder how much spilled just then ...

Wait - does anyone else think that jackass jet plane refillers are the cause of the fuel crisis???

Can be a situation where practice makes perfect. but I know people who have done it hundreds of times and because of different atmospheric situations - it is never the same doing it twice in a row.

"Unbelievable" - nobody to blame - I`d take a guess that the fighter pilot was relatively new to doing this!!

Yes, Midair refueling is one of the maneuvers requiring most concentration from fighter pilots.

What the pilot did at first was over correct his approach to the hose and miss it. Then, he accelerated too hard while he was hooking up with the hose, and this caused slack in the hose. The slack traveled back to hit the plane as a shock wave, but the pilot kept control. The "bowl" that the plane hooks up to was ripped off and the fuel can be seen gushing out. The end.

Just so that all the plane n00bs can figure out what was going on there :P

That is one of the most difficult jobs to do - mid air jet to jet refueling. For those of you saying what a waste of fuel! Obviously you`d rather the jet crews crash and die than refuel in mid air and land safely!
