A pair of F-22 Raptor pilots assigned to 43rd Fighter Squadron at Tyndall AFB, Florida, fly in formation after refueling from a KC-135 Stratotanker on 21 August 2012 near New York City. The Raptor pilots carried out a flyover before a Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball game during Air Force Week, a series of events held throughout the year in US cities without a significant Air Force presence. The events provide an opportunity for citizens to interact with Airmen and learn about the Air Force and its capabilities.
