amazing technology here. Ans some people think fishing up a door lock with a hanger is difficult!
Rescue Hercules and helicopters with fighter and attack aircraft air saved a lot of airmen from capture or worse back in the SEA conflict days. Interesting SAR episode attached

Air refueling requires skill and patience by the flight crew. I've been on several in the E4 when we did air refueling, even did one night refueling. It is a neat experience

Read that, was wondering if it was different than the sh60 version that always has aerial refueled with probe and drogue systems?

It used to be that a lot of helicopter flights would have to break off a mission because of they were running low on fuel so this could help with that part of it for helicopter crews.You would hope this technology gets to the Coast Guard too because they have one of the tightest times on station during a rescue mission.
