    I fell in love with them when I first saw them at the SR-71 retirement show.

    The SR-71 has kind of lost its uniqueness for me, since I see one all that time outside my internship :hsd:

    :notrly: It was mostly to pay for the F-22.

    Which is a sweet jet, don't get me wrong. The acquisition process was just all jacked up and the AF sacrificed a LOT of stuff to get something that really isn't necessary. IMHO. Priorities are off.


    But it is one bad mother fucker. That's for sure.

    Also Congress MAKES them that expensive by funding 5 at a time, instead of the whole thing at once. For how much we've paid now we could probably have had twice the number is our elected officials weren't such pussies.

    So who gets to pilot the F-22? Do you have to have rank? Just be a badass?

    Some guys fresh out of pilot training are getting the Raptor now, but for the most part it's high-quality doods out of Vipers and Eagles, AFAIK.

    You had better be able to back that statement up, because you have at least one person in this thread that will call you out in a heartbeat if thats inaccurate.
