1st FW and Missouri ANG recently completed Agile Combat Employment (ACE) exercise at the Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Virginia last month. Objective was to hone skills related to various tasks required for the new shift in combat employment. Langley's F-22s and Missouri's C-130s practiced deploying to a simulated austere combat environment, refueled and rearmed the F-22s and quickly turned them around so they could launch and support another mission.

Personnel had to unload and set up staging area to prepare to receive the F-22s.

What if the F-22 traded in it's two-tone light grey paint for the darker grey paint? Apparently, this person has an idea. (Credit to Lanzerince for producing the images).

Best demo yet... by a country mile IMO.

Just when you think you've seen it all, the Raptor delivers more. Those snap turns and rolls its making are just eye watering, even with them ending them early. They are really taking the gloves off this year, great to see it. Of course, youtube is the only way I'm going to see it. The only airshow around me this year cancelled, due to COVID. :bang:

The F-22's demo is with its turns and high alpha definitely look more aggressively. Makes me think that after all this time they have been holding back or something.
When ever I compare it to stuff seen at MAKS, the F-22 always looks like it is in more control while the Flankers and Felon look more ballistic.

Marines from Marine Wing Support Squadron 171 refueling F-22s at Iwakuni during joint refueling operations. 199th FS personnel over watched the operation. Anybody that eats crayons needs to be. However, it was reported the Marines were really excited working on a real 5th Gen fighter. :P
