The U.S. Air Force (USAF) Air Combat Command (ACC) F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team will begin their 2020 show season at the Singapore Airshow 2020.
This weeklong biennial show, scheduled from Feb. 11-16, is Asia’s largest aviation event and hosts high-level government and military delegations, as well as senior corporate executives from around the world.
This will mark only the second time the F-22 Raptor has been displayed at the Singapore Airshow and the first since the Bulldogs of the 525th Fighter Squadron, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, brought two Raptors to make an appearance back in 2016.
The F-22 Demo Team will join a contingent of other service members from the Pacific Air Forces Command (PACAF) who will be in Singapore to enhance the international partnerships with the dozens of countries who will be represented at the show.
To maximize efficiency transporting the jets in-and-out of the country, the team will be using F-22s assigned to the Hawaii Air National Guard, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. The demo team typically uses jets from the closest F-22 squadron in relation to the shows they are attending, a concept know as “Raptor Nation.”
