Pulling up

An F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft with the 80th Fighter Squadron, Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, lines up to receive fuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker from the 909th Air Refueling Squadron, Kadena Air Base, Japan, to begin an inflight refueling procedure May 12, 2016, inside the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex. In September of 1981, the 80th became the first unit stationed overseas to convert to the F-16 Fighting Falcon and on Jan. 31, 1992, the 80th Tactical Fighter Squadron was redesignated 80 FS. The 80th FS continues to support the United States Contingent in Korea with the same pride and excellence instilled in the squadron from the pilots of the past. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt.
