Fuel tank removal
An excavator picks up a flattened piece of a 50,000 gallon underground fuel storage tank as a C-130 flies overhead near the 33rd Fighter Wing March 11 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The tank was one of four removed from the area. The systems have been in place since 1959 and formerly used to refuel 33rd FW aircraft until recently. The new fuel storage system is already in place and increases the wing's capacity to more than a million gallons of JP-8 for the F-35s. (U.S. Air Force photo/Samuel King Jr.)
