Does anyone in the IFC know what was going on yesterday in these pictures? I spawned in and saw this and proceeded to be delayed on departure because of them. There was IFATC present and I am not sure if this was a scheduled event or just some oddity taking place. I’m not mad, it was pretty entertaining! They sat on the runway upwards of twenty minutes though.

I do, it was an event for Global Air Forces.
What exactly does that mean? I don’t know much military lingo if that is what it’s for haha
As the others have said, we were having an event!
Elephant walk is a large group roll down a runway.
Considering most of them had “flight of 9” in their callsigns it was a group flight. If i recall correctly, only 1 of the group flight members (if you are flying back to back of course) should ask for clearance
Got it! Now my only question is why they never took off
To answer your question, elephant walks are just about going down the runway with a lot of aircrafts, nothing about taking off, just taxiing in group and exiting the runway
Oh ok thank you! Why close the topic :(
We did a lap around the airport, came back and took off later. Probably about 50 minutes of milling around on the ground prior to our flight to Athens.
