Airbus Defence and Space has released a series of images of a Royal Air Force A330 MRTT Voyager refuelling an A400M transport over southern Spain.
Taken from what appears to be a Spanish Air Force EF-18M chase plane, the refuelling was one of a series conducted over four days during which the A400m received 80 tonnes of fuel in 100 wet contacts.
The RAF’s Voyager is fitted with a centreline hose and drogue refuelling system as opposed to the boom system used by RAAF, Saudi and UAE KC-30A and A330 MRTTs.
