Earlier this week I had the opportunity to see first hand the aerial refueling capabilities of the mighty KC-135R Stratotanker with an aircrew from the 912th Air Refueling Squadron attached to the 452nd Air Mobility Wing at March Air Reserve Base. Before we took off to refuel the 8 F-16s from Luke AFB, I took a moment to try and capture the amazing view from the cargo door of our KC-135R.
On the ramp at March ARB, you can see 8 KC-135’s that are used to provide aerial refueling anytime, anyplace…in combat and for training. I’ve been playing around with panoramic photography for only a short period of time, but stitched together this image composed of 24 individual images.

What do you guys think for a first effort? Does it do the scene justice?
