1/13/2014 – JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii — Approximately 12 F-22 Raptors and about 300 personnel from Langley Air Force Base, Va., are set to deploy to Kadena AB in mid-January, demonstrating continuing U.S. commitment to stability and security in the Asia-Pacific Region.  

Air Combat Command continues to routinely deploy aircraft to the Asia-Pacific Region, providing Pacific Air Forces and the U.S. Pacific Command commanders a Theater Security Package in the region, deepening ties with our allies and our relationship with the international community.

Movement of the U.S. Air Force fighters into the Pacific has been ongoing since March 2004, in order to maintain a prudent deterrent against threats to regional security and stability.
