F-22 Raptors and T-38 Talons from Langley were “Hurrevaced” to Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base.
The top image is quite impressive.
It shows 32 F-22 Raptors from Joint Base Langley-Eustis on the ramp of the 121st Air Refueling Wing, at Rickenbacker ANGB, Ohio.
The stealth multirole jets have arrived at the base south of Columbus, along with 10 – 12 T-38 Talons, on Oct. 5, to escape from Hurricane Matthews.
Many airbases located on the East Coast (and in Florida) have been “Hurrevaced” (from HurrEvac – Hurricane Evacuation) with their aircraft moved across the country.
During Hurricane Hermine in late August, Rickenbacker hosted several A-10s from Moody AFB, Georgia, whereas as many as 13 F-22 Raptors from Langley were squeezed inside a giant NASA Langley Research Center hangar, rated for Cat. 2 hurricanes.

After seeing that picture I’ll admit that I had half a stalk
ok. so anti-stealth ops must include hurrican-creating weapons? see movie
The Noah’s Ark Principle (Germany 1984, directed by Roland Emmerich)
Wow. Just unfair. Imagine these Raptors stationed in Poland. russian fighter pilots would be having nightmares.
is it wise to put all your golden eggs in one basket ?
Someday these will be resting in the Boneyard…
