33rd AMXS Airman conducts hot pit refueling on F-35

An F-35A Lightning II taxis up to a fuel tank for hot pit refueling at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., May 13, 2016. This type of aircraft refueling is done while the engine is running to get jets back in the air more quickly and is a common practice during wartime. The alternative is to taxi the aircraft back to the sunshade, shut down, refuel, and re-start the aircraft. Hot pit refueling allows the 58th Fighter Squadron to maximize time flying the fifth-generation jet. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Andrea Posey)
