If we go to war tomorrow, the Raptor will go with us.

That’s from a letter sent today from USAF General Ronald E. Keys to the chief of the Air Force. The F-22A Raptor is now officially operational.


Hats off to Will Collier and all the crew at Lockheed-Martin, and all the other men and women at all the companies who made this thing fly.

UPDATE: Somebody complained that I didn’t post any pretty pictures. John Noonan has them, along with lots of useful links. But click mostly for the pretty pictures.
