This photograph was snapped by a member of the United States Air Force — Airman 1st Class Kevin Tanenbaum, and was featured by Smithsonian’s Air & Space Magazine, online.
It captures — in incredible color and contrast — an F-22 Raptor getting some much-needed juice from a KC-1135 Stratotanker, “during night strike exercises.”

According to public data, the F-22 burns through about 2,900 gallons of fuel per hour. It can stay in the air on one tank (3,128 gallon-capacity) for about an hour and a half.
