I thought everyone went to the KC 35's

Hoist is the callsign of a USAF air to air refueling tanker.

There are innumerable reasons tankers tank fuel. It’s what they do.

It could be a deployment, it could be training. Every military pilot that flies a jet capable of air-to-air refueling has to do it several times per year to retain currency so they can do it if and when needed in combat. It happens every fucking day.

 Quoting: Indiana Jones


The KC-135 is older. The new version is the RC-135. They have much larger and more powerful engines on them.

The KC-10 is the military version of the L-1011 which has been converted into an air-to-air refueling tanker and, yes, they’re still flying them.

I don't disagree. 4 in a flight and pretty tight?

The only time I have seen that is in combat

It’s called MARSA.
Military Assumes Responsibility (for) Separation (of) Aircraft.
It makes it easier on Air Traffic Control because there is only one AC flight plan, one AC to control and many aircraft can be moved with ATC assuming it’s just ONE.

In MARSA, all aircraft must stay in visual contact with each other and remain within one mile of the lead AC. One mile is more than enough room for many AC.

One Tanker could tow 15 or more fighters MARSA. The tanker speaks with ATC and the rest follow.

 Quoting: Indiana Jones


Kc135 replaced the kc97

DC10s might be crew, support, fuel for BlueAngels and ThunderBirds.


The military version of dc10 is kc10, mid flight refuelet.

Makes sense. I just happened to see them and couldn't figure out why they were all so tight.

Still find it curious though
