'Bueno' Automatic Air-to-Air Refuelling demonstration for Air Force

13 July 2018
Automatic Air-to-Air Refuelling (A3R) has been demonstrated to the RAAF during a trial in Spain.
 
A3R allows a tanker aircraft to autonomously guide the boom into contact with the receiver aircraft.
 
On June 20, the Airbus Defence and Space A310 tanker testbed used its A3R system to connect with a 33SQN KC-30A, during a trial flight off the coast of southern Spain.
