Get ready to strap in for the ride of a lifetime.
The F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team performs precision aerial maneuvers at airshows across the world to demonstrate the unique capabilities of the world’s premier 5th generation fighter aircraft. The team also performs with the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation to showcase modern day fighter jets flying in formation with World War II, Korean, and Vietnam era aircraft.
The team is stationed at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, Virginia. In March 2007, the team participated in its debut air show at Tyndall Air Force Base. Since then, the team has performed more than 250 demonstrations across the world.
The 5th Generation F-22 is the world’s preeminent air dominance fighter and a proven strategic deterrent.
Lockheed Martin is leveraging synergies between the F-22 and F-35 and developing new technologies to increase commonality and lethality on the F-22. The Link 16 transmit capabilities included in F-22 Raptor Agile Capability Release (RACR) Release 1 will enable the two-way exchange of J-series messages (Link 16) between the F-22 and other Link 16-enabled aircraft, including the F-35. Future F-22 modernization will focus on sensor, datalink, and survivability enhancements in an evolving threat environment.
In April 2020 the Air Combat Command (ACC) authorized the release and fielding of the F-22 Update 6 Operational Flight Program (OFP) for incorporation into the Increment 3.2B Block 30/35 modification line. The F-22 Increment 3.2B Update 6 Block 30/35 modification line has been expanded last summer to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, and Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii.
