Oct. 23 (UPI) -- A U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor fighter plane was seen at an air base in Saudi Arabia, an indication that the stealth planes have been deployed there.

A brief video by U.S. Air Forces Command Central, released on Tuesday, shows an F-22 making a low pass over Saudi Arabia's Prince Sultan Air Base.

The video was accompanied by the comment that "the ability of fighter jets to operate at a variety of locations like PSAB demonstrates U.S. Air Forces Central Command and U.S. Central Command's commitment to providing a credible, capable and dynamic defense posture in the Middle East region."

U.S. military plans to send an F-22 squadron to Saudi Arabia were reported in July, and on Tuesday, Defense Secretary Mark Esper met with F-22 air crews at the Saudi airbase from the 27th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., who deployed to Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, during the summer.

Esper's visit was part of a Middle East tour that included stops in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia. Several weeks ago the Defense Department announced announced it would deploy two fighter squadrons, one air expeditionary wing, two Patriot batteries, and one Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System to Saudi Arabia, a possible indication of preparations related to rising tensions with Iran.

LONG DISTANCE DELIVERY | B-1B Lancers land @ Prince Sultan AB Saudia Arabia after flying directly from Ellsworth AFB SD. The B-1B is a long-range strategic bomber able to strike any adversary at any location on the globe. This demonstrates PSAB’s ability to conduct combat ops.

Did they fly from the US or pulled from nearby US bases?
The flew from the US. F-22, B1 and F/18 deployed to Saudi Arabia, F-15 to the UAE, F-16 to Bagram Airbase Afghanistan. Still waiting to see the B-52.

That's a signal to Iran you will be messing with the wrong people....
Lesson taught from Iraq and from Afghanistan and mistakes are not to be repeated. It would be a one shot one kill.

A single F22 or B1 bomber fully loaded can wreck havoc in Iran, they have nothing to counter the USAF....only thing they could do is to attack airbases using missiles or there navy might get a chance to fire something at a merchant ship.

B-52H Stratofortress, accompanied by Saudi Arabian F-15C Eagles, flew over PSAB. The bomber conducted a sortie to the CENTCOM area of operations to train with Saudi partners in support of shared regional security interests.

This goes beyond normal. If Iran acts stupid, the sky would rain cats and dogs.
