Listen To F-22 Raptors Pilot And Boom Operator Audio While They Refuel Mid-Air

F-22 Raptor Midair Refueling
October 28, 2016

The F-22 Raptor is one of the most, if not the most, advanced and lethal aircraft in this day and age. A fifth generation twin-engine, all-weather, stealth tactical fighter aircraft developed for the U.S. Air Force for the primary role of achieving and maintaining air superiority. Put in simpler words, Lockheed Martin created the F-22 Raptor with the explicit purpose of shutting down anything and everything in its path. Once in the air, it’s a force to reckon with.

Nonetheless, F-22 Raptors have to take-off and get gas at some point, particularly when assigned to carry out missions halfway around the world. In this video, F-22 Raptors from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska get a fill midair from a KC-135 Stratotanker from Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, with takeoff footage plus pilot and boom operator audio.
