Am I the only taker?
The articulated boom/drogue, looks to be of a F-105 Thunderchief.
But I cannot match it with any belly photo.
Then above that ?F-105? Is a KC-135 Stratotanker.
So we probably see a very rare triple refueling.
Now the receiver is not a Thudů.

I can assist further by showing the author/photographer dismount from said aircraft.
Taken from a 1965 edition of National Geographic.

The tricky exit for the GIB is a bit of a give-away. A "Hun" two-seater - F-100F?

I didn't realize that any USAF aircraft had refuelling probes.

And here's the single seater topping-up crossing the Atlantic photographed by the gent above.

Oh dear. I was hoping it might be a Lockheed Vega, but the colour scheme I suspect makes it unlikely...

Cheers.

Noyade has it - CF-AAM, a restored Fokker Super Universal.





I saw it once when it was flown into my gliding club’s airfield by Clark Seaborn, the restorer.

The sad thing is that after being flown around for several years, Clark was contractually required to deliver it to Winnipeg to be marooned forever in a museum!

More details and great videos here:

Noyade has the con.
