Refueling

click on the photo to see a larger version on Flickr

These two planes flew over the house on Wednesday. By the time I had gathered my wits and figured out what they were doing and where they were from, they had gone far past a good photographic range. But I still managed to get this shot before they disappeared.

The smaller plane is similar in size to a 707 jetliner, and is a KC-135R, called a Stratotanker. The big plane is an Army transport plane, a C-5A Galaxy.

  1. You actually saw a refuel overhead! I've ever only seen that in movies or on tv...what fantastic luck that they were refuelling over your place.
