VIDEO: E-3 and KC-135 in near mid-air collision; US Navy Hornet ops

Couple of videos for the weekend; Firstly a near miss as an inflight refueling between a NATO E-3 Sentry and a USAF Air Force Reserve Command - Air National Guard (137th-507th Air Refueling Wing from Tinker AFB, Oklahoma) KC-135 almost goes horribly wrong with both aircraft taking hard evasive action (particularly the E-3) to avoid a nasty mid-air collision. According the comments on the video, some crew on board the E-3 were slightly injured due to the sudden evasive action.

And another video, this time by the U.S. Navy, on the operations of Hornets and Super Hornets on board its carriers.
