    My dad flew tankers in the Air Force for over 10 years, so I still smile every time I get the chance to do an AR flight from a KC-135. There really isn’t a better view than down from the boom pod where it feels like you can almost reach out and touch the Raptor. ⁣⁣

Can’t kick ass without tanker gas. That’s for sure.

    When we plan how much fuel to take to our destination, there are so many extras built in just in case. 
For a short 45 minute sector, on average, our minimum fuel required will be in the region of 1,800kgs, with a trip fuel burn of around 800kgs.
That means almost 1,000kgs is ‘just-in-case’.
What do you plan for ‘just-in-case’?

    Pictures by @seaislandspotter of Mike-Delta, the first A380 to get the new livery, approaching over Los Angeles. *swipe*  We think that the second picture is absolutely stunning. Just look at this monster burning some rubber at LAX’s 24R. Do you know how many tires one A380 has? 2️⃣2️⃣ or 3️⃣2️⃣
