That photo is so clear that I can smell them. I love the smell of flightlines and sweaty horses.
This is one of my favorite pictures of the F-22, flying CAP when the shuttle went up.
that is an awesome picture
Pictures like these remind me of why I’m so proud to be an American - thank you for posting them.
I pray to God that we are able to find the leadership that this great country - and and the memory of its magnificent founding fathers - deserve.
When I view photos like this I feel so good for a few moments, then the reality of the crap occupies the WH and Congress rears its ugly head and depresses me again...
OMG, what did we ever do to deserve the likes of Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Pelosi and Reid and Schumer...I’m gonna be sick.
Why the external fuel tanks I wonder.
I’ve never seen an F-22 with tanks.
Thanks for posting. Very nice.
Pictures like this get this old Sarge’s heart racing in the morning!
Cool pic. I tested telemetry on compound 16 at Cape Canaveral in the late ‘80’s. Good memories. I will save this one to the desktop.
I like the F-22.
IMO that is the a/c we should be building. Build the heck out of them!
Some of them (I believe) went long range to Okinawa and Europe thus the extra capacity.
I hope none of them is talking on his cell phone. We don’t want any lane drift.
I hope they plan on using these things as more than uberexpensive photo opportunities. I would be sad if we wasted their airframes flying around not killing things. We need to get the commie in chief out of office ASAP so we can start making these things again because Russia isn’t going to hold back on their T-50. I personally don’t want the best socialized healthcare in the world or the best high speed rail in the world, I want the best fighter jets in the world and I want the best space program in the world.
