Regarding RAF L-1011 Tristar's tanking B-2's, as far as I know the RAF don't equip their Tristars with a solid 'boom', they just have the 'hose & drogue' system fitted...

Perhaps the next generation of RAF (Airbus-based?) tankers will (sensibly) be fitted with 'duel fuel' systems - boom AND hoses?
