On August 11th, 2021, One of the 199th Fighter Squadron’s F-22A Raptors had an in-flight emergency and had to return to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, which is attached to Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, for an arrested landing.
The event is also referred to as a “barrier engagement” in U.S. Air Force parlance.
The F-22 has an emergency hook. Daniel K. Inouye International has multiple runways equipped with the BAK-14 retractable arrestor gear system, which is essential equipment needed to support the co-located squadron of F-22 Raptors.
Here’s the video of the barrier engagement:
