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.

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...

Did anyone else notice in the first two photos in the last post that the ailerons are deflected for a right roll, while the stabilizers are positioned for a Left roll?

I would be interested in any explanation for that control law strategy.
