    I couldn't believe how many people showed up to see the F22 in action.My wife and I sat on a ridge over looking the airfield and were treated to a great show,loved it. The F22 was joined by a P-51 for a Heritage fly by,amazing the size difference between these 2 fighters when you see them side by side. The wife finally understood what I meant when I said these jets give me goose pimples when they scream by. It was a beautiful Colorado day. Jumped on my K1600GTL and headed home doing a little "Maverick" until the pounding on my helmet started.:lol:

    Glad you had a good time Torch! I was there too, my club decided of all days to have a plane wash. Got in and out before the crowds got huge, didn't see the flying but got to do a "cruise" along the flightline. Cool stuff!

    The F-22 is definitely a cool plane to see fly. Happy to hear that you had a good time.

    Good stuff, with the single ship demos all but gone now, you got to see a rare thing.
