2 June 2008
The first two Holloman-tailed F-22A Raptors are scheduled to arrive on base at 2:49 p.m. They will be received by the base population outside of Hangar 301 during a closed ceremony. The Alamogordo public is encouraged to take a look out their windows around 2:30 in the afternoon, as they will likely catch a glimpse of the two jets flying over the basin prior to landing and ushering in a new era at Holloman Air Force Base.



6 June 2008
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. T. Michael Moseley is scheduled to speak at Holloman June 6 in a ceremony recognizing the contributions of New Mexico to the Air Force, re-activate the 301st Fighter Squadron and officially welcome the F-22A Raptor to Holloman. At 7:15 in the evening, the Alamogordo public is welcome to view an F-22A aerial demonstration taking place between the base and town. The optimal viewing area will be on Mesa Verde Ranch Road, off the bypass. The show is scheduled to last 20-25 minutes and will be narrated over 94.3 FM
