F-22A Raptors Being Sent from Alaska to Guam

Fifteen F-22A Raptors from Alaska are scheduled to be deployed this month to Guam for about three months.

The military’s most advanced fighter jets and associated personnel are from the 90th Fighter Squadron at Elmendorf Air Force Base.

The U.S. Air Force says the deployment follows the recent departure from the western Pacific of two squadrons of F-22As. The Raptors and personnel that had been sent to Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, and Kadena Air Base, Japan, completed their redeployments in October.

The F-22A can avoid detection, cruises at supersonic speeds and is highly maneuverable.

The Air Force says the latest deployment is an example of the flexibility U.S. forces have to meet their ongoing security obligations throughout the Pacific region.
