Mid-Air Refueling

1602 lb 50bEarly February 1966: An Army Mohawk was refueled inflight by a Marine Corps KC-130F tanker. This first ever aerial pit stop by an OV-1B occurred over Cherry Point, NC. Modification of the Mohawk for inflight refueling can save time and money from engaging in the tedious process of disassembling the aircraft for shipping overseas; followed by reassembly upon reaching its destination.
