A U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon from the 52nd Fighter Wing receives hot pit refueling during a sortie surge exercise at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, Oct. 25, 2017. A hot pit is the refueling of an aircraft while its engine is running, resulting in a speedy refuel to get pilots back into the air quickly. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Preston Cherry)
