F-22s flown by the Hawaii Air National Guard’s 199th Fighter Squadron and the active duty Air Force’s 19th Fighter Squadron take off during an early morning 14-ship sortie rotation. The squadrons launched and recovered a record number of sorties, which is the most executed by these squadrons on a single day since the conversion to the F-22s. The sortie "surge" took place as the units were being readied to declare full operational capability April 7. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Michelle Thomas)
