The 166th F-22 Raptor built was delivered to the 1st Fighter Wing at Langley AFB, Virginia, from the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Georgia, on 13 September 2010. That aircraft (Air Force serial number 08-4166) marks the eighty-sixth straight aircraft delivered on or ahead of schedule to the U.S. Air Force. It was the thirteenth Raptor delivered this year. This photo shows the F-22 final assembly line in 3.8 million-square-foot main production building at the Marietta facility. The C-130J Super Hercules and P-3 Orion replacement wing assembly lines are at the other end of this building.
