005 – Aerial Refueling

On this episode, retired US Navy Captain Fitz “Dud” Lee explains how and why military aircraft refuel in flight, as well as which aircraft are capable of doing so.  We also exchange a few “sea stories” related to how managing aerial tankers is vital to flight operations at sea aboard an aircraft carrier.
