Formed in 1917 as the 90th Aero Squadron at Kelly Field, Texas and after 16 name changes they became the 90th FS "Dicemen" with their squadron emblem a lucky 7 "Pair O" Dice". The 90th FS is the fourth oldest fighter squadron in the USAF. The 90th FS is part the 3rd Wing and Air Force Reserve Command 477th Fighter Group. Elmendorf replaced their F-15E Strike Eagles with 40 F-22s, 20 for the 90th FS and 20 for the 525th FS.

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.
