Yes, funny. ;D
I hope this is water transfer into a (supersonic) water bomber, because transferring fuel between 2 huge flames would be rather dangerous :-\ ;D

You know that moment in the Battle Of The Bulge film where the German general realises that they've lost the war because he sees that the Americans have so much logistic and production capacity that they can afford to ship Christmas Cake over to the ETO?

Well this is the Cold War equivalent: you know you've lost when the other guys can not only fly through your airspace unmolested at Mach 3.2, but can even refuel each other while they're doing it, just to take the piss... ;D

Yes, and they even paint the tanker red so you cannot help seeing what you are unable to shoot down.  ;D

Such a shame that the Machmeter reading on the first SR-71 to outrun a SAM is still classified! The guy only hauled back on the throttle because he was afraid his plane would melt.

Awesome idea ericr, and well carried out too.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Another one that gets me to thinking like the last "strip." This time, I got to thinking about how you built a ton of models at once for this, like an assembly line, in which a mobius strip/infinity symbol is a rather apt symbol both physically and figuratively. Cohesion!   :laugh:

I have never seen a helicopter like that. I know why: this is a true invention! Congratulations, inventor! :thumbsup: :bow:
