F-35s join Alaskan airpower team

Two F-35A Lightning II aircraft, newly assigned to Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, and two F-22 Raptors from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, fly in formation over the Alaska Range, April 21, 2020. The F-35As at Eielson Air Force Base, partnered with the F-22 Raptors stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, will make Alaska the most concentrated state for combat-coded fifth-generation fighter aircraft when the full complement of 54 F-35As arrive by the end of 2021.
