Lockheed F-22A Raptor 02-4040 "The Pride Of Bay County" was delivered on March 22, 2005 and then in 2006 was assigned to the 43rd FS "Hornets" as part of the 325 FW located at Tyndall AFB. The 43rd FS received the first F-22 in 2003 and its primary function is to provide F-22 pilots with advanced air-dominance training. The 43rd FS was organized in 1917 and saw combat during WW I, WW II, Vietnam and formed part of the Alaskan Air Command during the Cold War.

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.
