mcguire kc-10a 85-0030 dep shannon 1/6/14.
I've always wondered how the tail-mount engine affected the approach and aerodynamic physics of the refueling process, as opposed to two or four under the wing.
Great shot of us leaving town! Robert, the tail mounted engine doesn't really affect the refueling aerodynamics at all as long as the receivers are on a 30 degree line below us. On approach, no affects. On landing, it gives a "nose down" force slightly at touchdown.
