Lockheed Martin F-22A Raptor

@ Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport, Santa Rosa, CA

September 2016

The Air Combat Command F-22 Demonstration Team flew their Raptor over from Travis AFB to perform at this year’s Wings Over Wine Country airshow.  Maj. Dan “Rock” Dickinson put on quite a show, highlighting the awesome maneuvering capability of this advanced aircraft.  First flown in 1997, the Raptor was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but also has ground attack, electronic warfare, and signal intelligence capabilities.  It entered service in 2005 and 195 were produced.  Nikon D500 w/80-400mm, processing with Aperture.
