Video: Blue Angels F-18 Refueling... In The Clouds!

 This video from 2009 would be cool enough if it was just an F-18 sucking up some gas from a KC-135, but it's more than that. It's a Blue Angels, F-18 sucking up some gas! Oh but wait, it gets even better... they're actually flying thru the tops of the clouds while the Blue Angels F-18 is sucking up some gas!

 And to top it all off (no pun intended), the pilot has added some excellent voice over to explain a little about the refueling process. This is a must see video if there ever was one : )

That's Len Anderson isn't it? Cool video, though, you'd think they'd go up or down a thousand or so and get out of the clouds wouldn't you? Nah ... they're the Blue Angels.
