Man, this is history in the making! One of the `22s also has mission marks painted under the cockpit, as well.

I remember F-16s at Happy Hahn AFB whenever I was stationed in Germany. A lifetime ago.

In 1961 I watched Colonel Grumbles land 041, the first F-105 assigned to Spangdahlem. It was not the first 105 in USAFE, though--Bitburg was already operating at least one squadron of them before Spang got theirs. A few of us gun plumbers went TDY to Bitburg and Wheelus to train on Bitburg's planes before ours arrived. The F-22 is a beautiful plane, but the Thunderchief made quite a splash in its day. Fifty-four years ago. Time does fly.

Lots of memories working F-4Gs and F-16s in those same aircraft shelters (HAS). Eight years at Spang ('92-'00) and still my all-time favorite assignment!

Does anyone know how many time it take to reach Germany with those planes ?

Testing out the global Raptor 24-48 hours 4 ship deployment along with crew and parts on 1 C-17 anywhere in the world. If need be, F-22 can land in less than 800m, so good luck targeting every airport in Europe with that spec. C-17 can land later when runway it patched up, on on a field, lots of flat open fields in Europe to accommodate even the heavies.

1:27 Holy shit 097, that's my aircraft!!!!



Raptors from Tyndall representing Panama City, FL!!! Stick it to them Russkies! These exact jets have flown over my house everday. In person, they look almost extra-terrestrial. I also used to live at Bitburg AFB which is 20min from Spang. Pure awesomness!!!

So beautiful fighters. I hope they gonna train with our Polish F-16 52+ during Belarusian-Russia "Shild of unity 2015". Thay can test and scan soviet aircafs from Polish air sapce.
Anyway, truly amazing mashines.
