Lol did those frenchies really paint googly eyes at the side of their tanker?! :eyes:


#1645

Aren’t those the APU’s?


#1646

I sure hope they work around the refueling limitations, because I’d really like to use a KC-10 and its ability to do both kinds of tanking.


#1647

Yea you like to swing both ways don’t you :rainbow_flag:


#1648
