Don't know if this video has been posted or not. Video shows the best way to photograph air refueling operation.

Guess I'm getting old. You would not catch me in that photographer's seat. Maybe further inside, but not there.

I think I'd have the camera strap around my neck though... ;)

Thanks for the link.

Well, he did say, "Strapped in, I was guided to the very edge by Staff Sergeant Mike Torres, a loadmaster."

Good find, but I need to move this to T Talk.

Now that looks like an awesome opportunity.

Im not sure about the bit where he said he needed to change lenses though - did he go back into the body of the C130 for that?

I would love to see the photos he got from that shoot.

Same here. Ok, not 20 years, but the Navy part. Army, too. I would love to hitch a ride on a military bird for some shooting.........w/ my Canon, this time.

KC-130J!!! Cool. I've been up front for so long I have forgotten how cool it looks to be the observer.

I wish I was awake when I was flying on a KC-135 from Nellis to Tyndall with 5(?) F-15C/D... And if I had my camera.

Oh well...
