Hickam AFB, HI 03/09/2013 - Raptors at last!

Post by James Ronayne » Wed Sep 04, 2013 6:53 pm

Having spent 11 days on the island and with only two full days of our holiday left we had almost given up hope on seeing the local F-22s in action. Arriving at Lagoon Drive to be told eight had just returned from an early morning mission we thought our luck really was out but thankfully at around lunchtime we were treated to five heading out on a sortie!

Tuesday also seems to be the best day to catch the P3s in action with another three hitting the notebook and I also got my first shot of a Hickam C17 - so all in all a pretty good day!
