The F-22 Raptor first flew in 1997 and was developed by Lockheed Martin, a Fort Worth, TX based aeronautics company. This stealth-fighter aircraft was first “introduced” in 2005, however, but has faced a number of technological difficulties that has prevented it from being used to its maximum capacity.
The F-22 Demo team flies these beautiful, expensive aircrafts as opposed to letting them collect dust. Each plane cost about $150 million to produce, and the total program cost clocks in at a staggering $67.3 billion.
