Huge Collection of Air Refueling Pictures

KA-6D of VA-145 Refueling an EA-6B of VAQ-137

Here is a picture I took some thirty years ago while deployed to the Indian Ocean on USS Ranger CV61 as a member of Attack Squadron One Four Five. We had a strength of 10 “Es” and 5 of the “Ks”. I do believe that the 80-81 cruise was the last for the KA-6D. The S-3s started to carry buddy stores and drops for the job after this.
BTW the Prowler is from VAQ 137.
