Video Thursday 3.31.11 Flying Americans

It’s Video Thursday and we’ll be flying through the wild blue yonder via Air Force, Navy and  Lockheed-Martin. We begin with an Air Force clip incorporating an old patriotic favorite by Toby Keith. Enjoy…

Next, we have a close-up look of Navy pilots taking jet petroleum (JP) from an Air Force tanker. Boom operators on Air Force jets normally fly the boom down to the refueling receptacle on Air Force jets.  Navy inflight refueling incorporates the use of baskets, which Navy pilots plug the basket with a refueling probe and so the USAF must use baskets on their booms to service Naval aircraft. Watch their technique here…

Lastly, we take a look at the future of space exploration after retirement of the space shuttle, watch this Lockheed-Martin video gazing into the future…
