Nice video history of our air dominance fighter the F-22.
The F-22 shouldn't have a "history". It's supposed to be new!
Only its unprecedented delays make it the oldest "new" aircraft one can think of.
Plenty of testing and refinement of systems is always a good thing. :)
place holder for later when site is not busy.
Just in time to escort B2's on a mission to Iran.
Raptor heritage flight.......
After the F-15 was put in service they started thinking about its succesor.That is smart in my opion to always be forward looking. I am sure the DoD already is looking to when UAV's dominate airspace long after the F-22/F-35 are history or winding down. Notice the first prototype doesnt fly until 1990 and it doesnt really look like the finished F-22.
Opinion...typo. And yes the F-22 is operational.
Hey son, over here.
Nixon was president.
I get an occaisional glimpse of a Raptor here in Panama City, FL. They've been training pilots here at the 43FS at Tyndall AFB for some time now.
Mark for later.
