British oil carrier fuelling a super dreadnought & submarine

Illustration showing a new kind of fleet auxiliary vessel, the oil-carrier, supplying oil fuel to the fleet, in this case a super-dreadnought and two submarines. The oil-carrier had no funnels being propelled by oil-engines instead of steam (the risk of explosion was far less due to the absence of boilers). Date: 1916

The first non-stop round-the-world flight in 1949

One of four refuelling contacts made on the first non-stop round-the-world flight in 1949, the Boeing B-50, Lucky Lady II, takes on fuel from a Boeing KB-29M. Lucky Lady II was refuelled with the early hose system in which the KB-29 tankers, flying above the receiver, trailed a hose which was caught by a grapnel streamed by the receiver and winched into the latter aircraft. Date: 1949
