USAF may send F-22s to Europe
The F-22, which flew its first combat mission in September over Syria, now is part of every strike package that goes into Syria as part of the war against the Islamic State terrorist group.
F-22s are stationed at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia; Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida; Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii; and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. They deploy to Kadena Air Base, Japan, from time to time and F-22s are forward deployed to southwest Asia in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.
Earlier this month, the U.S. sent B-2 and B-52 bombers to Europe as part of military exercises.
