Helicopter frantically refueling mid-air

It’s not often you see a helicopter refueling mid-air.

There a smattering of videos online of fighter jets completing the task, but very few of choppers doing it.

That’s why people have been left surprised by a recent video posted to TikTok.

The video shows a USAF Sikorsky MH-53 helicopter frantically trying to attach its boom to the floating refuel basket stretched from what’s presumably a KC-130J aircraft.
