FA-18E Super Hornet Refueling

A US Navy F/A-18E Super Hornet fills up her thirsty gas tanks from a KC-135R tanker over the Pacific Ocean. These Navy fighter jets, though fast and maneuverable, can't carry enough gas to make it all of the way across an ocean. They rely on the crew of the dependable KC-135R to gas up during flight and make it to their destination.
