Hot pit stop

An F-16 Fighting Falcon moves rapidly as fuels operators and crew chiefs execute a technique called hot pit refueling at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., Nov. 9, 2012. Hot pit refueling is a procedure usually performed in a combat situation to rapidly refuel aircraft while their engines are running resulting in a speedy refuel to thrust pilots right back into the fight. Airmen assigned to the 20th Logistics Readiness Squadron and 20th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron practice this technique to keep their skills sharp and aid in the effort to provide combat ready air power at a moment’s notice.
