Near collision of USAF KC135 and NATO E3 AWACS

This isn't too relevant to commercial airline safety, but the following incident did produce a rather dramatic video. Shortly after a NATO E3 AWACS connected to a USAF KC135 for refueling, the refueling boom is disconnected and the AWACS comes perilously close to hitting the KC135.

The USAF KC135 was from the combined 537/137 Air Refueling Wing of Tinker AFB near Oklahoma City, OK. It is not clear from the video where the NATO AWACS was based.
