    Hey all,

    Recently received a great link I thought I would share with you all. Gives the story of why the AF wants the F-22. Very cool video (and I know a few of the guys in it, which made me laugh).

    Enjoy!

    Reminded me of a poster I saw recently at Langley (home of the first F-22 wing):

    The F-22: because kicking your butts with F-15s and F-16s for the past 30 years got boring.... :biggrin:

    Interesting article. Common sense would probably tell you that this is the case, which is why I think the F-22 line should pump out some more of those bad boys.

    I think that producing the F-35 will be validation for Washington to cut the F-22 program.
