The 27th FS Lockheed F-22 Raptor 09-4174 had art work applied to honor the 27th FS highest scoring WWII Ace Major Thomas Maloney. Major Maloney crashed while flying his P-38 named "Maloney's Pony" and presumed dead but miraculously he survived even after stepping on a land mine and crawling for 10 days before a French farmer found him. The 27th FS began making one of their aircraft a "Maloney's Pony" until they equipped with stealth F-22s in 2005. In 2011 the tradition was reinstated and the 27th FS have their "Maloney's Pony" back on one aircraft. Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor specifications

Lockheed F-22A Raptor

Designed to meet a US Air Force requirement for an Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) to replace the F-15 Eagle, the F-22 was first flown on September 29th, 1990. The USAF's ATF program aimed to produce a fifth-generation air superiority fighter that would be better matched against emerging new aircraft such as the Su-27 Flanker. The F-22 uses stealth technology and can function in air superiority, ground attack, intelligence and electronic warfare roles. Despite its capabilities, the F-22 program was relatively short-lived; by 2010 its high cost coupled with the development of the F-35 (a more versatile and less expensive aircraft) led to a cessation of F-22 production funding.
