Yeah, I know...and probably across the spine as well...but if you'd ever stood in the empty engin bay of an F-16 after having stood in the empty engine bay or worked on the fuel cells of any other modern jet aircraft you'd probably be prone to asking the same question...
And as far as I know, nobody burns JP-5 any more.

Thing -- what THING!!!? >> you mean as in the F-16!! JP5 Jet fuel is pumped into the main wings - atleast two tanks one in each wing - as do most if not all fixed wing aircraft!!!

Till somebody stuffs an intake screen over you and yells - "start her up"...don't ask...
It's JP-8 now...at least in Navy circles. I think commecial Jet-A is still on par with JP-5...though I'm not up on commercial ops.
Jet noise...it's a beautiful thing.
