Refueling an F-16 in the middle of the night looks scary as hell

This video doesn't show much—and that's why it's so damn scary: Two US Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon jets approach a KC-135 tanker for refueling in the middle of the night. With no moonlight, the pilots and the fuel boom operator can only see the lights as they get closer and closer until they connect.

It must be so unnerving for everyone.

Any of our US Air Force or Navy friends want to comment?
