Over 100 members assigned to the 1st Fighter Wing returned to Langley Air Force Base today after a six month deployment to the Middle East. During their deployment, F-22 Raptor aircraft participated in Operation Inherent Resolve against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
“I can’t be more proud of our Airmen,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Jason T. Hinds, 1st FW Commander. “They did fantastic work operating and maintaining the F-22 for a prolonged period of combat operations. Well done.”
