Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor

@ San Francisco, CA

October 2016

Afterburners blazing, a Raptor from the Air Combat Command F-22 Demonstration Team performs a high speed pass during the San Francisco Fleet Week airshow.  The F-22 is among only a few aircraft that can supercruise, or sustain supersonic flight without using fuel-inefficient afterburners.  First flown in 1997, they entered service in 2005 with a total production run of 195 aircraft.  Nikon D500 w/80-400 mm, processing with Aperture.
