Viking Gas by Lyle462 Viking Gas by Lyle462
A U.S. Navy S-3 Viking passing gas. You'd think with me being a former boom operator that I would draw something Air Force wouldn't you! LOL

Seen that site many times. I was ES-3A Shadow driver. Variant of S-3 Viking. ... You got some talent. Keep it up!

Nice! It's funny I drew this. I was an AF Boom Operator (KC-135R). I was always fascinated with this type of A/R though. Thanks for the encouragement...will do!

Did you ever lower the boom on anybody?
Okay...i'm a better artist than i am a comedian.
I just love the field of view in this! It's a striking composition!
And the patterns of light and dark that dance across it really grab the viewer's interest.
Once again your extreme foreshortening is spot on.
And, for the umpteenth time, you have offered us a plethora of value changes and gradients.
It's a dynamic and very strong piece of work! :clap:

Thanks a bunch! I did on a night mission while gassing an F-16. Hit the jet so hard that I felt it through the refueling boom. Scared me to death (imagine what the pilot felt like). Fortunately I didn't break anything on his jet or ours. That's what I call "Inflight refuelling by braile!" There's more than one jet out there with my initials carved by their refueling receptacle. LOL
