A Horizontal shoot-em-up game...

My colleague is looking for a game way back from the 8 bit era, (definitely not an Amiga game as he never had any Miggies) where he had to fly with an airplane over a river ( or sea, or ocean) and from time to time he had to land on ships to refuel, toherwise ran out of fuel and crash...
I have some faded memories regardin an arcade game like this one, but also can't recall it's name...

Any ideas?

Harrier Attack by Durell Software?

Edit: from Wikipedia -
"The player controls a Sea Harrier fighter, looking sideways onto a right-to-left scrolling seascape and landscape. The aim of the game is to take off from a carrier, attack ships and land targets, avoid the odd missile and enemy fighter, then land back on the carrier again"

I'd say it's the famous Wings of Fury, dunno on which platforms it was released though, but wasn't it quite widespread?
