The US staged an “elephant walk” this week at Kadena Air Base in Japan.
The Americans displayed this show of force as tensions continue to rise with North Korea.
The Aviationist reported:

During Elephant Walks military aircraft taxi in close formation right before a minimum interval takeoff.
This kind of exercise is often performed at airbases all around the world (including South Korea), to prepare squadrons for wartime operations: what’s important is to test crews capability to quickly and safely prepare fully armed aircraft for a mass launch.
