F22 Raptor over White Sands

An immaculate F22 Raptor of the 7thFS catches the rays of the evening sun as it prepares to meet the challenge of a pair of T38s high over White Sands. In the distance is their home base, Holloman AFB. Against the darkening sky are ghosts from the squadron's past history, extending from its immediate predecessors like the F-117 Nighthawk back to the squadron's beginnings with the P40 Warhawk.Commissioned by the squadron( Oil, 20 x 30ins )
