This Is a Plane Refueling a Helicopter That’s Carrying a Hummer

The United States Marine Corps has a long tradition of fighting anyone anywhere with limited logistical support. Marines improvise. This tradition of ingenuity is aptly demonstrated in a training exercise at an aviation base in Yuma, Arizona. In the above photo, a CH-53E Super Stallion heavy lift helicopter carries an entire HMMWV in slings. The Super Stallion is thirsty, so it takes a drink from the KC-130T Hercules tanker.

Think that’s impressive? Take a look at this:

That’s an MC-130 tanker simultaneously refueling 2 Super Stallions, each of which is carrying 2 Hummers.
