F-22A ...:FLIGHT.:.READY.:.TO.:.FIGHT:...

Today, thanks to AF.mil, here's the best few paragraphs giving the GREEN LIGHT to the F-22A:
Release Number: 050106
1/13/2006 - KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- The Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center recently completed the F-22A Raptor Follow-on Operational Test and Evaluation and has rated the Air Force's newest fighter as mission capable in the air-to-ground role.

"This was a significant milestone in terms of validating the F-22A's combat capability," said Major General Robin Scott, AFOTEC commander. "We are confident we have provided Air Combat Command and senior Air Force leaders with an accurate and complete picture not only of the Raptor's impressive operational capabilities but also where additional resources can be focused to further mature and sustain this 21st Century fighter."
Oh yeah!

There is one more bit of good news, and that is in a follow on post. Right now, I'd be worried if I were on the receiving end of any F-22A sortie.


Stay Tuned to ...

The F-22 is a beautiful aircraft. Wish I were back on AD and rated to fly one...

Fly one? ME TOO!

That was a great shot, eh? Right above her so that you can see all the panels, stealth-joints and overlaps, the pilot (and visor closed), and then a bed of clouds ...
