According to the team's official account, the clip was taken from a cabin of a legendary single-seat WWII P-51 Mustang. Video shows the spectacular and gripping F-22 pivot on a relatively small altitude above a rural area. The location of the footage is not disclosed.
F-22 Raptors are fifth-generation fighter jets, according to aircraft manufacturer Lockheed Martin. The jet includes advanced stealth technology and highly-integrated computer systems.
In 2017, the US Air Force announced an upgrade to the F-22 Raptor’s stealth suite, adding new weapons and materials to improve the advanced fighter’s capability to strike and destroy targets without being detected.
