Often pulling over 7 G’s and throwing a flame longer than the length of the aircraft itself!

Episode 9: Aerial Refueling
When the USAF asked what aircraft we would like to feature while on a refueling mission, we jokingly said a stealth F-117 fighter. To our excited surprise, we received two of them for our story. Take a very rare flight and join us on a refueling mission with 2 of the most dangerous fighters ever built. Now in retirement, this unique opportunity cannot be repeated.
