D800, 17-35 and AWACS Air to Air

The good news is that I have never seen an AWACS refuel in person and quite honestly it was a pretty awesome sight to see. The bad news is that with the boom operator in place it is next to impossible to get a clear shot and of the entire plane, unless you are centered, and that is where he is doing his job. The other problem is that it takes so much of the tankers fuel, you don't have much left for other receivers.

Still thought it was kind of amazing to see. I have other planes with the D4 and 24-120 I will process and post later.
