This  current photograph of the Hawaii Air National Guard alert facility shows one of the F-22 Raptors standing alert. 

The alert facility was dedicated on October 22, 1958. The 199th Fighter Squadron and their F-86 Sabers began 24-hour active air defense alert at 0001 on October 23, 1958. Since then, the hanger facility has housed F-86s, F-102 Delta Daggers, F-4 Phantoms, F-15 Eagles and the current F-22s.

The groundbreaking for the new F-22 Aerospace Control Alert (ACA) Facility was held on February 18, 2019. When the new facility becomes operational, the old hanger will be demolished.
