Taken by photographer John Dibbs for Lockheed Martin's Code One magazine, these two F-22 Raptors are flying against the snowy picturesque backdrop of Alaska and they look absolutely stunning. So stunning and pristine and impressive that the pictures almost look fake.
Code One writes:
In addition, Alaska's strategic location allows the Arctic Raptors to deploy rapidly anywhere in the world. They are nine hours or less flight time to almost any location in the northern hemisphere. Further, with the renewed Russian bomber activity over the last several years, the F-22s at Elmendorf are on alert twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
