    These pictures show a fighter plane (Call sign Bosco 2) coming in close to the back door of a C-130 (call sign Nester 26) for a photo shoot

    He radio's "Nester 26, how close do you want me"

    Picture 1: Nester 26 "Bosco 2, tighten up a little more"

    Picture 2: Bosco 2 "Hows this?"
    Nester 26 "Tighter please"

    Picture 3: Bosco 2 "How about now?"
    Nester 26 "Can you get any closer?"

    Picture 4: Bosco 2 "OK, is this what you want?"
    Nester 26 "Your getting there, just a little more"

    Picture 5: Bosco 2 " Close enough"!!

    I'd dab the brake pedal a couple of times - that'd keep the bu&&er back

    Probably a dead spot immediately behind, same as getting close up (tailgating) an Artic improves your MPG, no wind resistance.
