Williams apprehended by fellow pilots

U.S. Air Force Col. Stephen Williams, 35th Fighter Wing commander, is aggressively met by three 35 FW pilots after completing his fini-flight at Misawa Air Base, Japan, June 16, 2014. A pilot’s fini-flight has become a U.S. Air Force tradition, and celebrates milestones with champagne or similar, a toast and dowsing with water from a fire truck for the aircraft and aircrew. Usually, family or families of the departing aircrew or personnel also meet them on the flightline and douse them with water. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Derek VanHorn)
