Here's a nice clear shot of the 27th flagship 09-172 with the NASA Langley Research Hangar in the background.

This is the only pic I could find of 09-185 Of course it's before it received it's paint job. I'm sure I've seen this jet flying around , just not close enough to see it's markings.

Had a question in regards to the difference between DD250 and acceptance into the Air Force. Is there a difference. Always wanted to know what happens between the DD250 date and when squadron takes ownership.

BTW, we are still missing a bunch of squadron assignments.

Excellent question regarding difference between DD-250 acceptance and the traditional AF receiving inspection. Normally, as you may know, the AF receiving unit would normally perform a very extensive receiving inspection. Due to the problems that would entail in disturbing finishes, a different approach was devised. An AF acceptance team was co-located with the Defense Contract Management Commands F-22 team. The AF Team and DCMA team worked out plans as to who would inspect what. They teamed together with the AF members performing most of the final inspections on many areas just prior to final closure. In some cases each would defer to the other depending upon the area and situation. Flight acceptance was normally performed by an AF test pilot assigned to DCMA. As needed, others were borrowed when the schedule was heavy. The DD-250 was the official US Govt acceptance and transferred ownership of the jet to the Govt and allowed for final payment. Upon delivery to the unit, all that was necessary was the normal post-flight inspection and the bird was ready to go. Many arrived and were Coded Code 1. Ready to fly. This saved millions over the duration of the program.

Just a nice photo of Langley's 187 slicing through the clouds during the recent 2015 USAF Heritage Flight Training and Certification at DM AFB. The image captures the moment either during the abrupt pull over at takeoff or at the beginning of the Power Loop.
I'm watching...

So to me that sounds like the aircraft on DD250 are pretty much squadron ready. Which makes sense now that aircraft arrive at the squadron shortly after in most cases. That wasn't the case years ago. BTW, working on getting all the DD250 dates for the F-35 program.

120 I last saw fly in July 2014. could be here,in rehab, or it could be at Edwards. sometimes a couple Nellis raptors will spend a lot of time there. it's not that unusual for planes to disappear for extended times around here.
