This is one of the coolest videos we’ve seen in a while. It looks like Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska was doing a photo-op of sorts and were gathering some B-roll. We’re sorry to say that as of now we’re not exactly sure what this is for, but as soon as the final product comes out, we’ll fill you in and show it to you.
For now, we’re just going to have to enjoy this fantastic B-roll of the coolest F-22 Raptor flyovers. We know, life is so tough.
We will speculate, however. If you wait till the end of the video you’ll see an active service member come and hug the buzzee (we made that word up for “the person being buzzed”) which would confirm the assumption that this is a part of a bigger production. The older gentleman was also captured from different angles and made different hand gestures indicating they were trying to get a good shot.
We here at World War Wings have done a lot of coverage of World War II veterans and we have to say we feel like we’ve seen this man before. We also mean no disrespect, but he looks old enough to be a World War II veteran.
For now, though, enjoy the video. We’ll continue digging into this story but if any of you have any info on this, just let us know in the Facebook comments section. Thanks.
