An improvement in an airplane mounted aerial refueling boom wherein the boom assembly mounting permits motion about three axes. A first pivot attached to the fuselage of the airplane provides for radial or azimuth motion of the boom about a vertical or yaw axis of rotation essentially normal to the air stream. The second axis of motion, the pitch axis, is located below the airplane fuselage and perpendicular to the yaw axis so that the pitch axis rotates with any yaw motion of the boom and allows vertical displacement of the boom. Vertical and yaw displa...
[ What is claimed and desired to be secured by Letters Patent of the United States is:] [1.] A maneuverable apparatus for interconnecting a fuel supply airplane with a trailing receiver airplane during high speed in-flight fuel transfer, said apparatus comprising:(a) first pivot means mounted to said supply airplane to provide angular motion about a first axis of rotation oriented essentially normal to the line of flight of said supply airplane at the time of maneuvering said apparatus;(b) second pivot means attached to and rotating with said first pivot...
