A330 MRTT transfers fuel using Fuselage Refuelling System

Demonstrating its final method of refueling, an Airbus A330 MRTT has successfully passed fuel to receiver aircraft using the Fuselage Refuelling Unit (FRU) for the first time. The FRU is a hose and drogue similar to that fitted under the wings, but with a higher rate of fuel transfer. The MRTT has demonstrated all of the aircraft´s refueling systems.
