Misawa F-16 Fighting Falcon pilots, in collaboration with Kadena Air Base Airmen, executed a unique refueling capability for the first time at Misawa Air Base, Japan, June 25.

Training with a smile

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. John Guerrero, an 18th Logistic Readiness Squadron forward area refueling point team member from Kadena Air Base, Japan, carries a section of a fuel hose to a MC-130J Commando II during a FARP training event at Misawa Air Base, Japan, June 25, 2020. FARP entails the rapid transfer of fuel from one aircraft to another. On this occasion, an MC-130J Commando II and four F-16 Fighting Falcons completed the procedure with all engines running. This capability makes it possible for fighter aircraft to land, replenish fuel and return to air-battle operations within a short timeframe in austere environments.
