There was film made of flight refuelling trials with a Belfast attempting to fuel from a Victor; not very successfully. As the Belfast throttled back in order to make a fresh stab at the basket one very senior officer in the audience was heard to say that he hadn't realised that the engines could be reversed in flight in order to slow down.
