A U.S. Airman with the 1st Special Operations Squadron from Kadena Air Base, Japan, opens the cargo bay door during a forward area refueling point training 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 Falcon 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.
