Default F-22 raptors

So, Hearing that the first set of F-22 coming into base today. Any of your military guys/girls seen it yet? I just love those fighters. They're pretty much amazing to me.

Every day. We've had 4 of them up here for a while. First 2 came in Apr. and the second 2 arrive in late June. We only added 4 more today, even though the news said 6. The media doesn't always get the right information, or all of it either.

Makes me wonder what a few of you guys do on Elmo. I probably drive by these airframes twice a day. Just dont have a need to stand next to one on a daily basis.

I think the confusion over all about the 22s was that there was/is going to be some kind of welcoming ceremony (im out of state or I probably would have been there). The ceremony itself I didnt totally understand either because of the 4 that have been here a while now.

yeah we've had 4 for a while now, but they never "officially" got here, they were just training assets, but the welcoming ceremony was for when they did officially got here...today

2 of them didn't fly today, one was in the hanger as a static display and another had some type of maintenance being performed on it; they probably just saw 6 land and said 6

Its next to impossible to get clearance to take pics of it right now. First chance I get though I'll try. They have a demonstration coming up on the 19th for the 90 FS's 90th anniversary. May be some oppurtunities there.
