Japanese get first look at Raptor capabilities

  • Published
Japanese media and members of the Japanese Embassy in Washington D.C. visited Langley Air Force Base, Va., Jan. 31 to get a look at the F-22 Raptor before it makes its first overseas deployment to Okinawa.

The visit gave the Japanese a look at the Raptor's capabilities through a presentation and a chance to meet and interview some of the 250 Airmen who will deploy to Japan later this month. Airmen and 12 Raptors from the 27th Fighter Squadron will spend the next several months supporting coalition operations in the western Pacific.
