The Lockheed F-22 Raptor is a stealth air superiority fighter aircraft and was on display at the Avalon 2011 Airshow. The F-22 is a fifth generation, highly maneuverable aircraft and is regarded as the best air superiority fighter in the world today. You can see a short video of the F-22 and can watch this amazing aircraft in action.
The Raptors were flown from Alaska for the Airshow and were part of a large United States Airforce presence at the event. There were two Raptors on static display and they were guarded 24 hours a day by armed guards and guard dogs.
The other aircraft images are of the Hercules C-130H and J models of which the RAAF has both. The RAAF Hercules on display at Avalon was the “H” model and the US Airforce had a “J” model on display. Can you pick the difference?
There were many other aircraft on display and I will be uploading images of them as I process them.
