At least I couldn't find any footage or pictures for an F-4E with a probe...all were with the refueling receptacle and boom, like here:

Remember, he had to push the plane, so he had to keep the tailhook in front of him. He wouldn't have been able to maneuver the plane with the contact point behind his line of sight.


So it was the tail hook of the aircraft in trouble, that touched Pardo's windshield (where it meets the fuselage).
