  • Published
In honor of the Air Force's 60th anniversary this year, the Sept. 27 episode of "Jeopardy!" will feature special video clues taped during host Alex Trebek's USO tour to Japan. 

During the end of the category, viewers will be treated to a fun and unique spotlight about the Air Force.

Mr. Trebek and the "Jeopardy!" crew visited Kadena Air Base, Japan, in March. The video "clues crew" taped question clues at various base locations.

Kadena AB aircraft to be featured in the Sept. 27 broadcast include the F-15 Eagle, KC-135 Stratotanker and HH-60 Pave Hawk. Also featured are 12 F-22 Raptors on their first overseas deployment from the 27th Fighter Squadron at Langley Air Force Base, Va.

In addition to the clue video segments, there will be an Air Force questions panel which will highlight current Air Force activities as well as emphasize the 60th anniversary.

"Jeopardy!", a winner of 27 Emmy awards since its debut in 1984, was recently inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for the most awards won by a TV Game Show. The series is the No. 1-rated quiz show in syndication, and has held that title for more than 1,000 weeks.
