Notes:

The night refueling is the serious trial as for the pilots as for a photographer too. In the full darkness you can see only the navigation lights of the refueling aircraft and while you have absolutely no light sources around even the tanker's strobe will be a good flashlight. You just need some patience to catch the moment. And a good camera of course, cause such the conditions of photographing requires almost all the potential of it. This one was taken with Canon EOS 1D X mark II at ISO 51200.
