Back Four . . .

May 2022


Military aviation would be severely handicapped without aerial refueling. Foremost in providing stratospheric gas-and-go services for more than 60 years is the Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker, shown here servicing a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. "Back four" means "move back four feet." This is the last correction most refueling boom operators give before they initiate a "breakaway" (rapid aircraft separation). (Created for the 55th Air Refueling Squadron)




Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?), and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your order for the Aerocatures™ Calendar now!
