Alaska ANG Raptor Incident

An Alaska Air National Guard F-22A Raptor here in Hawai‘i for the Sentry Aloha training exercise, had an incident when landing on Runway 8L. The left main brake had overheated and caught on fire. Emergency vehicles arrived shortly after and doused the Raptor in fire suppressive foam. The runway remained closed for the majority of the day as maintenance crews used airbags to fit a new tire onto the aircraft.
