From the Mailbag: Fill 'er up!

OK, this wasn't actually sent to me as The Curmudgeon, but I did get it in an email... and I think these images are both remarkable and worth sharing.

See if you agree.













It is amazing that this can be done. It is even more amazing that -- on some level -- this is a matter of routine.

Oh Oh Oh, I got to do this once! I worked for a TV show and we filmed an Air Force wing doing a refueling mission down at March Air Force Base. It was great. I got to lay down in the "pod" where the operator has a boom they use to attach to the waiting plane. They do view it as routine, I think it's amazing.
