Two F-22 Raptor aircraft prepare to take off during an Air Force Operational Energy mission at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage, Alaska, August 13, 2017. The aircraft were part of a demonstration to assess if flying at an increased speed consumes less fuel and while saving precious flight hours. Could flying faster save the Air Force fuel?
In support of the Air Force Operational Energy Program, six F-22 Raptors flew from Alaska to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, accompanied by two aerial refueling KC-10 Extenders on Aug. 13, 2017, to determine if flying at an increased speed could optimize operational energy consumption.
