Flying behind a KC-135 Stratotanker from Kadena Air Base, Japan, an F-22 Raptor, representing the Langley Air Force Base, Va., demonstration team, and F-16 Fighting Falcons, representing the Misawa Air Base, Japan, demonstration team, enter Australian territory after refueling on Feb. 22, 2013. The jets are part of the Australian International Airshow 2013, which is scheduled from Feb. 26 to March 3. It is the largest biennial and international trade show in the Pacific. At the airshow, a cross-section of U.S. military aircraft and equipment are scheduled to be present through static displays and aerial demonstrations, including the United States Air Force’s F-22 Raptor, C-17 Globemaster III, F-16 Fighting Falcon, B-52 Stratofortress, and KC-135 Stratotanker. Approximately 220 U.S. service members are supporting AIA13, which represents a unique opportunity for the United States to showcase its aviation prowess and promote strong military-to-military ties with its Pacific allies and friends.
