When it comes to air superiority, it’s hard to top the capabilities of our Hawaiian Raptors. Unless, of course, you combine their airpower with the world’s most sophisticated fifth-gen aircraft! 

We are now training with F-35A Lightning IIs, based out of Luke Air Force, Ariz., as part of exercise Pacific Raptor 20-1. Not only does this new iteration of training combine the most-advanced weapon systems in existence, but these stealthy fighters are training with the 18th Aggressors, from Eielson AFB, Alaska. 

Pacific Raptor builds off the pre-established momentum and infrastructure of Sentry Aloha to reduce expenditures, enhance combat tactics and progress annual training requirements. It takes a world-class team of Airmen to take on this feat, and in our case, each step of the way is led by professionals from the Air Force’s Active Duty, Reserve and Air National Guard components.
