US Drone Tanker Makes History By Providing Fuel To Fighter Jet In The Air:

For the first time, a US military drone tanker made history by supplying fuel to a fighter jet in mid-air.

According to foreign media reports, the US Navy said that this historic event took place on Monday when an MQ-25 Stingray drone tank manufactured by a Boeing company transported 325 pounds of fuel in an F-18 Super Hornet fighter jet during the flight.

The landmark is a vital one as the U.S. Navy looks forward to adding the MQ-25 to its carrier air wings, or CVWs, in the future.

According to the report, during the refuelling in the air, the distance between the two planes was only 20 feet.

The U.S. Navy says the drone tanker can carry up to 15,000 pounds of fuel, while the aircraft can be used for reconnaissance and surveillance work, including refuelling in difficult situations.
