Knowledge Preservation: Re-fuelling and re-supply underway

Re-fuelling and re-supply of LTAV and Airships while under-way is an important tool to extend the endurance and range of LTAV.  The United States Navy (USN) developed and practiced various procedures to enable re-fuelling and re-supply at sea, starting with the Airship Tender USS Patoka in the 1920's, and developing those procedures until the end of the USN use of Airships in the early 1960's.
