Passing Gas: The History of Inflight Refueling by Major Vernon B. Byrd, Jr.
History and stories about in-flight fueling in peaceful and combat situations.

"Aside from the works of airplane buffs, Byrdís effort is the only commercially published book on aerial refueling available in Air Universityís library. Researchers must seek other materials in periodicals, SAC histories, RAND studies, and so forth. The Air Force History and Museums Program has contracted a book on the subject, but it will not see publication for some time. Engagingly written and illustrated by a former tanker crew member of the Vietnam era, Passing Gas is the closest thing we have to a general history of air refueling, including material on the British experience." --Dr. David R. Mets, Aerospace Power Journal
