HONOLULU (AP) - Two Hawaii-based F-22 Raptor fighter squadrons are ready for combat.
Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam is home to 20 F-22 Raptors. The Hawaii Air National Guard began the transition from F-15 Eagle aircraft to the F-22s in July 2010.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says the two fighter squadrons have been cleared to be able to deploy all of their aircraft. The move is a step up from last November when the two fighter squadrons attained initial operational capability status, meaning only some of the warplanes could be deployed.
The Hawaii Air National Guard and Air Force share responsibility for flying and maintaining the F-22 aircraft.
