The twelve F-22 Raptors are the largest ever deployment of the fifth-generation aircraft to Europe and are part of the United States “European Reassurance Initiative.” The birds of prey first stopped off in England at RAF Lakenheath, then visited other bases in Europe such as in Romania, and in particular Lithuania who shares a border with Russia.

“We’ll get the F-22 into facilities that we would potentially use in a conflict in Europe, things like the bases where we do aviation attachments, to places where we do air-policing missions,” –  Gen. Mark Welsh III, the Air Force chief of staff

The Raptors will be in Europe till the end of May, so hopefully we will get even more amazing photos coming in.

  1. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but
    after browsing through some of the posts I realized it’s new to me.

    Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking
    it and checking back often!
