Nice catch phat01 :thumb:
Can just make out the hose as well, i know the A330 is big but surprised at how mush bigger it does look compared with the E3 there.

Just for info, the 330 uses the same wing as the 4 engined 340. The wing strength in its design made it ideal for tanker conversion. Basically the missing outer engines form the mounts for the hoses.

Don't normally see more than two AH-64's in formation, I thought it sounded a bit heavier than normal so quickly grabbed the camera.
