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.
