JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS —

A KC-135 Stratotanker from the 121st Air Refueling Wing refuels an F-22 Raptor from the 1st Fighter Wing over the Atlantic Ocean, April 12, 2018. The 1st Fighter Wing is home to the 94th Fighter Squadron and 27th Fighter Squadron at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va. and the 121st ARW is from Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base, Ohio.

The 1st Fighter Wing is responsible for one third of the Air Force's combat F-22 Raptors.  The wing's mission is to deliver F-22 air power worldwide on short notice to support Combatant Commander taskings.  In addition to operating and maintaining two F-22 Air Dominance squadrons, the wing also flies the T-38 as adversary air to increase training capability.
