Thought you guys would get a kick out of this.

FIRST FA-22 DELIVERED TO LANGLEY

It's a beauty!!!!









FIRST FA-22 FIGHTERS DELIVERED
TO   LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE.
These are Great In-flight Photos
Of the FA-22 as the first Aircraft
Delivery was being made to Langley
AFB in   Va.    Langley is to be first
Operational AFB for the FA-22. It is
A very beautiful AFB, located in a
Picturesque location, as you can see
In these photos, near   Norfolk and
Hampton,   Va.   
The Aircraft flying along with the
FA-22 in the last of these photos is
The F-15, which will be replaced by
The FA-22 which is several times
Better.
In Actual In-flight (simulated)
Combat Operations against the F-15,
Two FA-22s were able to operate
Without detection while they went
Head to head against (8) F-15s. The
FA-22s scored Missile Hits (Kills)
Against all the F-15 Aircraft and the
FA-22s were never detected by
Either the F-15s or Ground Based
Radar.. Maj. Gen. Rick Lewis said:
'The Raptor Operated Against All
Adversaries with Virtual Impunity;
Ground Based Systems Couldn't
Engage and NO Adversary Aircraft
Survived'!
FA-22 --   America 's Most Advanced
Fighter Aircraft for the 21st Century!
They're a titanium and carbon fiber
Dagger. They're so advanced that if
Their on-board locator is switched off
Even our own satellites can lose track
Of them. They're the first military
Aircraft ever built that is equipped
With a 'black-out button'. What that
Means is this:
The best conditioned fighter pilots are
Capable of maintaining consciousness
Up to in the vicinity of 15+ G. The
Raptor is capable of making 22+ G
Turns.. If someday an adversary builds
A missile that is capable of catching
Up to one of these airplanes and a
Raptor pilot sees that a strike is
Imminent, he hits the 'b.o.b.' and the
Airplane makes a virtual U-turn,
Leaving the missile to pass right on by.
They know that in the process he will
Temporarily lose consciousness, so the
Raptor then automatically comes back
To straight and level flight until he
Wakes back up.
DON'T MESS WITH THE   USA !

Saw a flight demo of one at a local airshow in Oct 2010.  Kick ass jet!

Actually, though, they were first delivered to Langley back in '07 - '08 time frame.  Too bad the Obama admin canceled the program, so the 185 or so we have in the AF inventory is all we're gonna get... unless it gets reactivated later.

There was a good article on the F-22 in Defense Review a couple years ago about what some would call a fiasco of a program (still, a beautiful plane and impressive performance):

When I was at Nascar in Vegas a few weeks back they were in and out of Nellis the whole weekend.  THey are pretty neat looking planes. 

We also saw several Stealth Bombers take off and land a few times.  They are huge.

The Phantom was (and in some places still is) quite an aircraft. "Noisy, smokey and un-phantom-like, " my dad used to say, but the ones he flew got him through some sphincter puckering situations in Vietnam. He came back from one night reconnaissance mission with both wings full of holes.
