A United States Air Force B-2 Spirit bomber and two F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft conducted an interoperability training on January 15 in support of Indo-Pacific operations.
The B-2 Spirit bomber is one of the three deployed from from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. The bombers arrived January 10.
Meanwhile, the two F-22 Raptors are from the 199th Fighter Squadron at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii.
The bomber and fighters flew near Diamond Head State Monument, Hawaii during the said interoperability training mission, US Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) said.
“Bomber aircraft regularly rotate through the Indo-Pacific region to integrate capabilities with key regional partners and maintain a high state of aircrew proficiency,” the US PACAF said.
