A pair of F-22 Raptors pulls away and flies behind a KC-135 Stratotanker after receiving fuel off of the East Coast on July 10, 2012. The 1st Fighter Wing at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., received their first two Raptors in January 2005 and the wing’s 27th Fighter Squadron was designated as fully operational in December 2005. The Raptors belong to the 27th FS and the KC-135 belongs to the 756th Air Refueling Squadron at Joint Base Andrews Naval Air Facility, Md. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Jeremy Lock)

The Air Force’s Week in Photos for July 13, 2012 includes a truly awe-inspiring shot of a pair of F-22 “Raptors” over the East Coast.

The F-22 is the most advanced and deadly fighter aircraft ever built, and it is unlikely any existing aircraft can defeat it in a fight with its mixture of stealthiness and missiles that could blow an enemy out of the sky before he knows a “Raptor” is in the area.

There are also interesting shots of an A-10 undergoing pre-flight checks and an inspection of a CV-22 Osprey in New Mexico.
