Move Establishes Partnership With Hawaii Air National
Officials at Hickam AFB, Hawaii, formally dedicated two F-22
Raptors on July 9, inaugurating the base as the newest permanent
home for the aircraft, and marking the start of a partnership
between the Hawaii Air National Guard and the active-duty Air Force
in flying the F-22. Pilots from the 199th Fighter Squadron, 154th
Wing, Hawaii Air National Guard, and from the active-duty 19th
Fighter Squadron, 15th Wing, will fly the F-22 at Hickam. A
combination of Hawaii ANG personnel and active-duty airmen will
maintain the base's eventual fleet of 20 Raptors.
Ceremony speakers included Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle (R), U.S.
Senator Daniel Inouye (D), Gen. Gary L. North, commander of Pacific
Air Forces, and Gen. Craig R. McKinley, chief of the National Guard
Bureau. "We at Lockheed Martin are proud to celebrate with the
Hawaii Air National Guard and Hickam Air Force Base as the base
becomes the newest operational home for the F-22," said George
Shultz, vice president and general manager of the F-22 Program for
Lockheed Martin. "We look forward to a long-lasting partnership
with the Hawaii ANG and the base in keeping the Raptor flying and
further enhancing its capabilities over time, to ensure Hickam
F-22s promote deterrence and stability through air power in the
Pacific for decades to come."
F-22 Raptors are assigned to seven U.S. bases. Flight testing
takes place at Edwards AFB, CA. Operational tactics development is
ongoing at Nellis AFB, NV. Pilot training occurs at Tyndall AFB,
FL. Operational F-22 aircraft are assigned to Langley AFB, VA,
Elmendorf AFB, AK, Holloman AFB, NM, and Hickam AFB.
