Four F-22 Raptors from the 199th and 19th Fighter Squadrons taxi prior to take-off Nov. 20 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. The Raptors executed a Rapid Raptor deployment, which is still in the proof-of-concept phase, to Andersen Nov. 20-24. Once the Rapid Raptor concept becomes an operational capability these small detachments of U.S. fighters performing short-duration deployments aim to strengthen the overall U.S. posture with a smaller footprint than traditional expeditionary forces or theater security packages.
