Airmen from Hickam recently returned from a two-week deployment to Hill Air Force Base, Utah. The group, made up of Hawaii Air National Guardsmen and Active Duty Air Force personnel, as well as four F-22 Raptor fighter jets, took part in the Air Force's air to ground weapons evaluation program known as Combat Hammer. The goal of Combat Hammer is to evaluate the effectiveness of air to ground weapons systems. The two-week exercise provided a number of firsts for the Hawaii Air National Guard and its airmen. This is the first training deployment for Hawaii’s F-22 raptor and the first time the Hawaii Air National Guard has trained in an air-to-ground capacity. Combat Hammer took place over the Utah Test and Training Range from July 30th to August 9th. Inert (non-live) bombs were dropped in this exercise. Available in high definition.

  • Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam- A team from the Hawaii Air National Guard’s 199th Fighter Squadron and the active duty Air Force’s 19th Fighter Squadron, departed Hawaii today to participate in a Red Flag exercise at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev   The exercise will run through February 1.  The exercise participation follows the initial operational capability of the F-22’s that occurred in November 2012. Red Flag serves as the Hawaii’s Raptor’s first over water deployment for the fifth generation fighter jet. 

The F-22A Raptor is the Air Force’s primary air superiority fighter providing unmatched capabilities for air supremacy and homeland defense.  Positioning F-22s in the Pacific strengthens military-to-military relationships, promotes regional security, improves combined tactical air operations competence, and enhances interoperability of forces, equipment and procedures.

Red Flag is a realistic combat training exercise involving the air forces of the United States and its allies, and conducted on the vast bombing and gunnery ranges of the Nevada Test and Training Range. It is one of a series of advanced training programs administered by the United States Air Force Warfare Center. Available in High Definition.
