F-22 Raptor Stealth Fighter

Posted by Bill Brown (California, United States) on 14 September 2009 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

This is the F-22 Raptor, one of the newest aircraft in the Air Force inventory. The company I worked for in my civilian job produced some of the components on this amazing aircraft.

Great image of these impressive air crafts. I have been to several air shows and have some fun shots in my port folio if you would like to check them out.

Marie-Jezaria from Paris, France

Iron eagle...
It's so impressive... But it's also a war symbol..
If I'm impressed by the look of this plane, he's "curves" very beautiful... but I know that is also an arm ! ;-)
But the shot is a beautiful one ! ;-)

@Marie-Jezaria: Thanks for your comments! I do understand your point of view, but you can also think of it as a deterrence to war.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States
