Multiple F-16 ‘Fighting Falcon’ fighter jets put on a show as they taxi down a runway at Kunsan Air Base, South Korea.

The spectacle that took place in 2012 was a joint demonstration of U.S. and South Korean Air Force capabilities and air power. F-16’s from the following units took place in the event;

  • 35th and 80th Fighter Squadrons of the 8th Fighter Wing, Kunsan AB, South Korea
  • 4th Fighter Squadron of the 388th Expeditionary Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah
  • ROKAF 38th Fighter Group of the Republic of Korea Air Force

How many Falcons do you see? Any Viper pilots here take part in this dance?
