Aircraft, maintenance, and support personnel from the French Air and Space Force traveled to Hawaii for exercise Wakea as part of the bilateral cooperation in the Pacific between the United States and France.

During Wakea, HIANG F-22 Raptors trained with French F3-R Rafale fighters and other FASF aircraft to enhance air-combat expertise and interoperability between the two countries’ aircraft. Senior FASF officials were able to observe and tour Raptor ops, part of the many interactions French Armed Forces officials had throughout the week with leadership from the various military service components based in Hawaii.
