The Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet connected to the Boeing-owned MQ-25 Stingray drone mid-air Friday The drone then transfered 325 pounds of fuel to the fighter jet near MidAmerica Airport in Mascoutah, Illinois Footage shows the moment the Super Hornet connected to the Stingray’s hose and received the jet fuel The two aircrafts came as close as 20 feet to each other during the in-air refueling The use of the unmanned drone to refuel fighter jets will free up Navy personnel otherwise tasked with refueling aircrafts for other operations https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9662675/Navys-tanker-drone-makes-history-refueling-manned-aircraft-time.html
