The F-22, one of the U.S. Air Force’s premier fighter jet planes, is making a return visit to the Airshow. The Lockheed Martin F-22 “Raptor” is a twin-engine, single-seat stealth tactical fighter aircraft for the U.S. Air Force. The Air Combat Command F-22 Demonstration Team, based at Langley Air Force Base, will perform precision aerial maneuvers to demonstrate the unique capabilities of the fifth-generation fighter aircraft. The Raptor is a combination of stealth, super-cruise, maneuverability, and integrated avionics, coupled with improved supportability. Its debut represented an exponential leap in war-fighting capabilities. The jet performs both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions allowing full realization of operational concepts vital to the 21st-century Air Force. While it was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, the aircraft also has ground attack, electronic warfare, and signal intelligence capabilities. The Raptor was a local favorite at the 2019 show.
