An “Elephant Walk,” comprising 12 KC-10 Extenders and six C-17 Globemaster IIIs from the 305th Air Mobility Wing, was held as part of a training exercise at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. The exercise enabled aircrew, maintenance, command post and operational support personnel to test their ability to launch a mass amount of aircraft in support of real-world operations. An Elephant Walk is a nose-to-tail taxi formation.
