EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018: Boeing Plaza - F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II

By Fred Harl
The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 Boeing Plaza static displays with a look at the current generation of U.S. tactical jets: F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lighting II. Here we feature the arrival and display of an F-35 from the 56th FW at Luke AFB, AZ, the principle training base for the type, and an F-22 is from the 325th FW based at Tyndall AFB, FL. They were on display behind ropes and tough but friendly armed guards, providing a clear view for photos! Thanks go out to EAA and the U.S. Air Force for making these still intriguing aircraft available for public display.
