I think it was more of "both planes caught a pocket of air and climbed at the same time" than "pilot reaction".

You have to be psychic and know in advance to be able to react that fast... though I'm sure the skill of the pilot played a big role in avoiding an accident.

There is a Youtube channel called airboyd with lots of air to air refueling action. I really like these videos and amazed by the performance of the crews.
