The first jets in an air wing of advanced U.S. stealth F-22 fighters that is temporarily being deployed to Japan arrived Wednesday at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa Prefecture, according to Japanese government sources.

The four jets, which arrived at the base at around 3:10 p.m., will be joined by 10 others to eventually comprise a fleet of 14 F-22s. The aircraft are expected to be stationed at the base for about a month, the sources said.
