2016: A Picture and its Story
A pilot looks up from a U.S. F-22 Raptor fighter as it prepares to refuel mid-air with a KC-135 refuelling plane during a flight to Britain from Mihail Kogalniceanu air base in Romania, April 25, 2016. Toby Melville: 'I hate flying, so when I was asked if I fancied a day trip from a US air force base in Britain to near the border with Crimea, to photograph a mid-air refuel of US fighter bomber planes, I did initially hesitate. I have been sick many a time on previous assignments; flying in military helicopters over Baghdad, in planes hugging mountains in Kosovo and on six-seater propeller planes bouncing up and down through electrical storms in the Chilean Andes mountains. But the chance to shoot from such a unique viewpoint soon overrode all my queasy qualms. A 3.30 alarm call marked the beginning of a 19-hour working day. Eight hours of the shift were spent mid air in the 50-year-old hulk of a noisy, rickety and dark behemoth of a fuel tanker plane. The USAF crew members gave me several opportunities to shoot the Raptor fighter jets performing their miraculous seeming manoeuvres during the day. The Raptors flew at hundreds of knots, just metres from us and with precision accuracy, the umbilical-like line would drop out of the bottom of our plane and lock onto a miniscule-looking aperture on the top of the F22's. This frame shows a pilot preparing to receive the fuel-line. With the bonus of an optically super window to shoot through, together with great visibility on the return leg to Britain from Romania, I was satisfied with the pictures. Thankfully on this trip I managed to keep my composure and during the debrief, still trying to hide wobbly legs, I didnÕt mention to any of the pilots or crew members that I once even puked on an escalator - thatÕs how bad my motion sickness is!'

The parent of India's SpiceJet Ltd said it can't afford to bail out the cash-strapped budget carrier that was forced to ground its entire fleet on Wednesday after creditor oil firms refused to refuel the aircraft. The loss-making airline, majority-owned by billionaire media tycoon Kalanithi Maran's Sun Group, has a fleet of around 22 Boeing Co planes but owes nearly $100 million to a raft of creditors including state-owned oil companies. This week it asked the Indian government for help to keep its aircraft in the air. REUTERS/Anindito Mukherjee (INDIA - Tags: TRANSPORT BUSINESS RELIGION)

Passengers of SpiceJet Airlines wait outside the ticketing counter after their flight was cancelled at the domestic terminal of the airport in New Delhi December 17, 2014. The parent of India's SpiceJet Ltd said it can't afford to bail out the cash-strapped budget carrier that was forced to ground its entire fleet on Wednesday after creditor oil firms refused to refuel the aircraft. The loss-making airline, majority-owned by billionaire media tycoon Kalanithi Maran's Sun Group, has a fleet of around 22 Boeing Co planes but owes nearly $100 million to a raft of creditors including state-owned oil companies. This week it asked the Indian government for help to keep its aircraft in the air. REUTERS/Anindito Mukherjee (INDIA - Tags: TRANSPORT BUSINESS)

A Germanwings aircraft is refuelled at Cologne-Bonn airport October 15, 2014. German pilots at Lufthansa's low-cost unit Germanwings are to go on strike on Thursday as a dispute over an early retirement scheme drags on.

A KC-135 tanker aircraft is pictured during a mid-air refueling of U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel's E-4B, a militarized version of a Boeing 747, as he returns from Ramstein Airbase in Germany to Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, over Newfoundland March 11, 2013. Hagel returned to Washington from his first visit to Afghanistan as Secretary of Defense on Monday. According to the crew of the aircraft, which serves as the National Airborne Operations Center for the president, secretary of defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 60,000lbs of jet fuel was transferred in the operation at an altitude of 24,000 feet. The aircraft requires refueling on long legs due to its heavy weight. REUTERS/Jason Reed (CANADA - Tags: MILITARY POLITICS TRANSPORT)

Local farmer Shu Mansheng sucks fuel out from a tank with his mouth as he tries to refuel his self-designed and made flying device in the cabin before his first test flight in front of his house in Dashu village, on the outskirts of Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei province August 30, 2011. The round steel flying device, which cost more than 20,000 yuan, was the fifth model made by Shu, a junior middle school graduate. It is 5.5 meters in diameter, powered by eight motorcycle engines, but failed its test flight on Tuesday because the engines failed to work well together.
