An entry in the April 5 Daily Report incorrectly stated which USAF cargo aircraft consumes the most fuel. It is the C-17. We have corrected our original entry.
U.S. Air Force F-35s and F-22s regularly deploy deep into the Pacific region from Alaska, Utah, and Hawaii. In the future, though, the head of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command would like to see the Air Force permanently station fifth-generation aircraft west of the international date line—closer to China.
