Two F-22 Raptors took off from JBPHH around 4 下午, followed by a third F-22 about an hour later, Hawaii News Now reported.

Fox News has reached out to Pacific Air Forces seeking more information.

The incident came less than a week after another unspecified incident prompted the base to issue a lockdown order for several hours.

调查期间, tours were suspended while guests at the USS Arizona Memorial and the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum sheltered in place. Tours were later allowed to resume.

The lockdown affected summer classes at two public elementary schools on the base. Hickam Elementary evacuated students to a chapel and contacted parents for early pick-ups while Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary students sheltered in place, said Derek Inoshita, a spokesman for the Hawaii Department of Education.
