The Air Force’s largest combat wing and its mission partners on Kadena Air Base generated an impressive array of some of the most advanced aircraft on earth including F-15C, F-16C, F-22A, F-35A, MQ-9, HH-60G/W, MC-130J, KC-135, P-8, RC-135 and E-3 ready to perform any air combat mission to ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific. This gathering of air power comes as we welcome our new rotational units, bringing F-16Cs and F-22As to the Keystone of the Pacific, while also saying arigatou and farewell to our F-35As and Air National Guard F-15Cs.
