More F-22 Raptors Headed to Tyndall Air Force Base

More F-22 Raptors are heading to Tyndall Air Force Base.

The first five F-22 Raptors assigned to the 49th Fighter Wing are scheduled to leave Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico on January 6th.

They are part of 24-raptors that will become part of a 95th Fighter Squadron and Aircraft Maintenance Unit.

The Air Force re-activated the 95th on October 11th.

This new mission will also mean an additional 1,100 military and civilian jobs to our area.

The 95th will join the 43rd Fighter Squadrons and Aircraft Maintenance units, who's main responsibility is training pilots to fly the F-22.

Tyndall is currently the Air Force's only base that trains raptor pilots.
