The F-22 Raptor performed its precision aerobatics at the Fort Worth Alliance Air Show, marking the first time the aircraft has demonstrated its aerial capabilities in the skies over the Dallas-Fort Worth area. F-22 pilot Maj. David ‘Zeke’ Skalicky of the US Air Force’s F-22 Demonstration Team from Air Combat Command at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, flew the Raptor during the performance, entertaining an estimated total crowd of 110,000 that attended the air show over the two days. The F-22’s appearance proved particularly significant for Lockheed Martin employees working in the F-22 program at the company’s Fort Worth site, where the aircraft’s mid-fuselage is built.
