Rush Hour Traffic?

U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Rasheen Douglas

We keep thinking there’s a joke here somewhere about how many F-16s it takes to change an enemy’s lightbulb — but we’ll let that pass.

What this photo really shows is more than two dozen F-16 Fighting Falcons from the U.S. Air Force’s 35th, 80th and 466th Fighter Squadrons demonstrating an “elephant walk” formation as they taxi down a runway at Kunsan Air Base, South Korea. The Dec. 2 exercise showcased Kunsan AB aircrews’ capability to prepare aircraft quickly and safely for a wartime mission. The F-16s were fully fueled and armed but did not take off.

The 466th Squadron is temporarily assigned to Kunsan from Hill Air Force Base, Utah.
