AviatorAndy's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
Name's Andy, I specialize in the art of aerial refueling. I can't think of a better enlisted job than lying down in the back of a KC-135 passing fuel to another aircraft less than 50 feet away. It's a terrifying adrenaline rush. I enjoy photography and what better place to take pictures than in an aircraft up close to other aircraft. I have the chance of getting those great aviation pictures from locations and angles many dream to get. While my main focus is aviation photography, I am starting to dip into cosplay and convention photography. As a brony and an anime fan, I can get the best of both worlds. You won't meet another person like me. For videos of air refueling and cosplay related content, visit my Youtube channel below!
Hello all you wandering people and friends who have stumbled upon my channel.  As you may or may not have seen, I have changed the name of my DA page.  Additionally, I have changed my Youtube handle, Twitter, and instagram to all resemble AviatorAndy (no spaces).  I have decided to make this change to allow for a better direction I want my content and name to travel.  I still am, and most likely will, be a Brony for life, but I want to allow my name and content to reflect not only my aviation photography and videos, but to capture my cosplay and other photography without singling a certain genre, if that makes sense.

Basically, I want to include all my interests into one name.  And I felt like the "Brony" Part singled only a certain group of people.  In addition, I know I won't be a Boom Operator forever, but I plan to continue my aviation career as long as I possibly can, ergo where the new name comes from.

Still expect the same content (aviation, cosplay, pony, ect.) just under new names
If you haven't yet, follow on twitter and instagram; AviatorAndy, and subscribe on Youtube!

Thanks for following me on DA, you are cleared off at the bottom of the block!


The Navy E-6B TACAMO descends after completing air refueling training. 

The E-6 Mercury is the Navy's Airbourne Command Post, a Boeing 707 airframe fitted with CFM56 engines.  These engines are the same ones found on the KC-135R models, with the addition of thrust reversers, which the KC-135R does not have.  TACAMO stands for Take Charge and Move Out.
