Epic Flight Line ‘Elephant Walk’ Showcases F-22 Fighter Jets


    F-22 Raptors assigned to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, perform an elephant walk on the flight line to show readiness during the COVID-19 pandemic. The “Moose Walk,” more commonly referred to as an “Elephant Walk,” was so named to pay homage to both Alaska’s unique wildlife and to the C-17 Globemaster III, often nicknamed “The Moose.” This event displayed the ability of the 3rd Wing, 176th Wing and the 477th Fighter Group to maintain constant readiness throughout COVID-19 by Total Force Integration between active-duty, Guard and Reserve units to continue defending the U.S. homeland and ensuring a free and open Indo-Pacific.
