F-22 begins northern ops.


Elmendorf Air Force Base Alaska recently marked the commencement of Lockheed Martin's F-22 Raptor operations in the Pacific region. 90th Fighter Squadron has become the fifth home of the Raptor, with Edwards, Tyndall, Nellis and Langley Air Force Bases being first online, and Holloman, New Mexico and Hickam in Hawaii to follow suite. 106 F-22 aircraft have passed final assembly at the Lockheed plant in Marietta, Georgia and of those a total of 99 have been delivered, out of a planned 183. The F-22 has been in service with the US Air Force since December 2005.
