Refueling Probe

This is the refueling boom and probe of a Hawai‘i Air National Guard Boeing KC-135R "Stratotanker". The probe connects with a receptacle in US Air Force aircraft to off-load fuel. It was on display during the 2009 Hickam AFB Air Show.

It always amazes me that they can refuel in mid air. Very cool shot!
