The telescoping member of an aerial refueling probe is hydraulically actuated for extension/retraction by pressurized fuel. The force for extending the probe is the result of fuel pressure against a check valve in the end of the telescoping member. The force for retraction is the result of fuel pressure in a retraction chamber between the telescoping member and the inner fixed member of the probe wherein the separating force generated therein retracts the telescoping member. A housing is provided to isolate the probe from the environment and to reduce th...
1. A telescoping fuel probe comprising; a main fuel line for providing fuel to the probe to extend the probe and for receiving fuel from the probe; a secondary fuel line for providing fuel to the probe to retract the probe; a check valve; a stationary inner tube, connected at one end to the main fuel line and terminating at the other end in a first flange having an outside diameter larger than the outside diameter of the inner tube; a movable outer tube disposed about the inner tube and having an inside diameter that corresponds to the outside dia...
