Whether or not “Normal Arrive” – Arrival of US Air Force F-22 Raptor Stealth Fighters in Australia

Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor stealth fighters from the U.S. Air Force will be visiting the Northern Territory this month as part of the Enhanced Air Cooperation (EAC) program. The US aircraft arrived at RAAF Base Tindal yesterday, Thursday 18 August 2022, in preparation for several weeks of EAC program training and activities.

This activity is happening at the same time as Exercise Pitch Black 19 August 2022, in the Top End. EAC aims to deepen advanced air to air integration between the Australian Defence Force and US air elements to better enable us to operate together seamlessly, and has been successfully operating for several years as one of the United States Force Posture Initiatives.

It is the same program that recently saw B-1 Lancer aircraft visit RAAF Base Darwin in June during Exercise Diamond Storm and also B-2 Spirit Stealth Bombers visit RAAF Base Amberley recently in July, integrating into Exercises Koolendong and Arnhem Thunder.”

EAC aims to deepen advanced air-to-air integration between the Australian Defence Force and US air elements to better enable us to operate together seamlessly. EAC activities include fith generation integration, aircraft maintenance integration, aeromedical evacuation (AME) integration, refuelling certification, and combined technical skills and logistics training.The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is an American twin-engine, stealth tactical fighter aircraft developed for the United States Air Force (USAF). As the result of the USAF’s Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) program, the aircraft was designed as an air superiority fighter, but also has ground attack, electronic ωαяƒαяє, and signals intelligence capabilities.

The prime contractor, Lockheed Martin, built most of the F-22’s airframe and ωєαρσиs systems and conducted final assembly, while Boeing provided the wings, aft fuselage, avionics integration, and training systems. U.S. Air Force considers the F-22 a critical component of its tactical airpower. The fighter’s combination of stealth, aerodynamic performance, and mission systems enable unprecedented air combat capabilities.
