Comin' in hot: f-16 Fighting Falcons receive "hot pit" refueling
U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Braxton Quinlan, 52nd Logistics Readiness Squadron fuels distributor operator, carries a fuel hose after fueling an F-16 Fighting Falcon at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, March 28, 2017. “Hot pits” are a more efficient refueling method because the aircraft is refueled with its engines on, making the refill approximately 30% faster.
