13 F-22 Raptors and 9 other aircraft found a shelter in the NASA hangar at Langley.
The image above was posted by the Commander of the 1st Fighter Wing at Joint Base Langley-Eustis.
It shows 13 F-22 Raptors along with 9 other aircraft for a collective 22 planes squeezed inside inside a giant NASA Langley Research Center hangar, rated for Cat. 2 hurricanes, where the multi-role stealth jets were recovered in preparation of the arrival of Hurricane Hermine.
When there is no enough space to accommodate all the aircraft, airbases about to be hit by Hurricanes evacuate their aprons temporarily moving the planes to other airfields: an operation dubbed “Hurrevacing” (from HurrEvac – Hurricane Evacuation).

What you do when hurricane strikes? Squeeze em’ f22 with a couple of Cessnas together in a tiny little hangar, of course.
No this is all in an attempt to keep bees away from the F-22…
