Hot-pit refueling saves time, manpower and equipment usage by using a Type-4 hydrant system to refuel aircraft while they are still running between training missions.

Please note: Pictured is A-10C 81-0988, but unfortunately the hi-res version above doesn't really shows the entire picture... @ Spang webmasters: Would you be so kind to repair this?
