Image Number 4 for United States Patent #8118261.

An in-flight refueling method may include deploying a fueling hose from a refueling aircraft. The fueling hose may have a drogue. The deployment of the fueling hose may include extending the drogue using a telescoping arm having a ring. The deployment of the fueling hose may also include passing the fueling hose through the ring to deploy the fueling hose. The in-flight refueling method may further include retrieving the fueling hose by drawing the drogue into a wire pitch mounted on the ring and collapsing the drogue in response to drawing the drogue into the wire pitch.
