Abstract:

Air-to-air refueling with the F-100 DF aircraft from a KC-135 tanker without the use of afterburner had not previously been explored with 335-gallon drop tanks. The 31st Tactical Fighter Wing and the 407th Refueling Squadron from Homestead AFB, Fla., were tasked to fly 16 tactical fighter sorties and 4 tanker sorties, respectively, to gather data in order to determine the optimum altitude for refueling without the use of afterburners.
