F-22’s 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. Includes sound bites from Tech Sgt. Russel Mesinas, F22 Crew Chief, 154th MXS.
