Smithsonian's Air and Space magazine asked the crew from the Kadena Air Base in Japan about what their instructional manual says just in case such an event happens.

"I think Godzilla would be expecting an aerial attack, so to catch him off guard, I think we could need 4,000 Segways and slingshots," said Jason Edwards, a master sergeant of the 18th Wing's public affairs office, who was nice enough play along and not to ruin the synergy with the upcoming release of Godzilla movie.
