F22 Raptor Demo Flight

F22 Demo Flight
The government cut funding for further production of this plane. Amazing technology but already the upcoming X-35 far outdoes this amazing machine and the choice was to move on forward regardless of potential for x-USA arms markets. Not sure if the government was shortsighted on this - or not. The roll of the fighter aircraft in future wars is somewhat foggy too. A consideral number of these were built but with no continuing program there is also question about future support for the existing craft.
