Capt. Kyle Oliver, 27th Fighter Squadron pilot and standing in front of FF 162, will be one the new Thunderbirds (Opposing Solo) starting 2020. As far as I know, he will be the 2nd or 3rd F-22 pilot selected as a Thunderbird.

TY 104 among several Raptors from the 1st FW to participate in Red Flag 19-3. The 1st FW was the core wing that not only had to conduct their own air-to-air mission, but also supported all participating personnel.

Outstanding pictures!

Absolute beast of an aircraft, beautiful to watch. I'm glad they're keeping it one step ahead with all of these upgrades we're hearing about (and I'm sure some we're not). The new medium and long range AAM's are really going to increase its killing power. If it gets that missile that's half the size of AMRAAM (with similar range) OMG... that's what, 14 AAM's?

I suspect that given that, we'll be hearing less and less about the need for an "arsenal" plane...
