The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft that delivers war- winning airpower to the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility.

Due to the close formation flying that is required for aerial refueling, this exercise is a great opportunity to capture these fighter jets up close.
