Holloman has about 23 or 24 raptors right now. They are receiving F-22's from Langley now as checksixx said and wont be getting any more from Elmo. This is because the new raptors are now going to Langley. This will also be the case for Hickam starting in june 2010. Its all about certain blocks in certain squadrons.
For example the 7th FS now has all of their aircraft - these came from Elmo. Now the ones from Langley starting with 077 (8th FS flagship) will be going to the 8th FS.

8th FS will be 60's 70's and a few 80's seriald aircraft. The 7th Has received 80's 90's and 100 serialed aircraft with a few exceptions due to wing kings aka 090 which will be left at Elmo marked 90th FS.

107 is a Holloman Bird
86 and 87 are supposedly going to be Holloman and have been seen there but are still carriying the AK code.

The 7th and 8th won't be getting any new build jets. They'll receive Blk 20 and 30 jets from Langley and Elmo. The latest lots of Blk 35 (capable) jets are going to 27th & 94th at Langley and the 90th & 525th at Elmo.

All,

The former '1FW' 05-101 / FF has now been transferred to HO and is carrying 05-101. Does anyone know which Lagley Raptor is now marked as the '1FW' special please?

Regards and thanks

Mark
