"Thirsty Corsair"

A Grumman KA-6D Intruder of VA-35 "Black Panthers" refuels a Vought A-7E Corsair II shortly after takeoff for a strike mission. This method allowed a plane to take off with a minimum amount of fuel aboard but a maximum weapons load, and then take on additional fuel once airborne before proceeding on mission.
About this creation

Rendered image of my KA-6D model with my A-7E model. The two models are not superimposed images, they are actually in the scene together, and connected by the refueling hose.

Quoting Kurt's MOCs Nice scene! The two aircraft look great together. I love the refueling tube and probe.
Thanks! I tried to get it to bend slightly, but it didn't want to cooperate with me and still position the A-7 correctly.

Quoting Matt Bace Awesome scene once again. I am always amazed that aerial refueling works at all.
You should look up some of the images of the original attempts with open canopy biplanes. The fact they didn't kill themselves in the process (usually) was amazing.
