Default 6 A-10s refueling overhead!

So there I was at an airfield in Hungary, flying gliders, minding my own business when I spotted something very unusual overhead. It was 6 A-10s aerial refueling from a KC-10.

We immediately tuned our radio to the airspace control frequency and listened to their conversation. The KC-10 was flown by a female pilot with a sexy voice

It was so funny how the Hungarian ATC guy couldn't understand much from the beautiful, clean American English of the USAF. They remained calm and respectful though, and started to say things as slow and articulate as if they were speaking to their grandma

Very nice photos and a lucky spot!

A cute girl behind the yoke of the aircraft with the boom, huh? Sorry Honey... I'm uh.. afraid I'm not quite sure I want to "experiment" like that...

They were headed for Turkey, and their callsign was "Sabre" flight.
