RAAF KC-30A refuels F-35A for first time

In a first for the Royal Australian Air Force, an Airbus KC-30A MRTT aircraft has conducted refuelling contacts with a Lockheed Martin F-35A fighter.
The four hour sortie took place from Edwards AFB in California, and saw the KC-30A perform 59 boom contacts. Of these, five contacts were “wet” and included the transfer of 43,200lb of fuel to the USAF F-35A.
