Are you trying some air to rail refuelling there, RailGooner? If so, your drogue looks a bit slack...

 :D I noticed that too, after I'd packed her away and posted the pic! But it reminds me of some of the neat tricks that were possible in the simulator.

With two 'chicks' on the pods we managed to, in an instant drop the landing gear, deploy air breaks, throttle back on 2 & 3 and engage full reverse thrust on 1 & 4. The result was a sudden enough deceleration that the chicks overtook us while still connected! :D

I was no pilot though - I was groundcrew. I remember one of our Captains was such a great pilot that he could, consistently and at will, loop the simulator! An amazing sight to see even in CGI. 8)
