Watch a drone refuel another aircraft in mid-air for the first time

An unmanned drone has refueled another aircraft during flight for the first time, a milestone that the US Navy says could help change future warfighting.

Boeing’s unmanned MQ-25 Stringray plugged a hose into a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet and pumped 325 pounds of fuel into the fighter jet on June 4, the manufacturer announced on Monday.

The demonstration was the first time in history that an unmanned aircraft has refueled another aircraft.
