A109 Refueling

Helicopter Humor

During the Falklands/Malvinas War, Argentine Army helos couldn't fly directly from the continent to the islands , so they made a jump for refuelling on the support ship ARA Bahia Paraiso. In one of those flights, an Agusta A109 arrived when a SA330 Puma was still on deck. As he went "bingo fuel", the A109 pilot "partially landed" the helo so they could refuel his aircraft in flight, so he could keep flying until the deck was cleared.

Carlos Garcia pictured that critic moment in a humoristic way.

Hey mate! Tell the nurse to lend me his enema hose ASAP, I'm a couple of feet short...
If I don't refuel it now, it will end in the water.
