Listen to the origin story, current state and future of the F-22 Raptor.
Widely considered the best air superiority fighter in the world, the Lockheed Martin F-22 is a fifth generation, twin engine, single seat, all weather stealth tactical fighter aircraft. Developed from decades of air combat experience the F-22 excels in its one true mission: to defeat any air adversary it encounters. This is accomplished by the Raptor’s incredible performance, advanced avionics, and stealth profile. Notable features include twin tails, a trapezoidal wing, and a golden canopy which is coated with a thin layer of Indium Tin Oxide or ITO which acts like an EM shield to maintain stealth characteristics.
