Night, VFR, air refueling practice mission with a wingman. Start airborne.
You are flight lead of "Hawg" flight. A two ship flight of A-10C's. The mission for tonight is to practice air to air refueling (AAR) with KC-135 tanker callsign "Texaco".
-Trim A/C for speed before moving to contact.
-Ignore the HUD info once you are close to the tanker.
-Fly formation on the tanker not the boom. i.e. look through the boom.
-For extreme precision flying I rest my forearm on my leg while applying slight pressure as required to the joystick.
-Once connected (while still flying formation on the tanker) make adjustments as required to keep the boom in the green arc.
-relax death grip on stick.
