Without a doubt, that shot was the photo of the day. If you could see this at full resolution you'd die. That's how sexy this plane is.
I've read all the performance stats, and heard the stories of a single F-22 taking on multiple F-16s and F-15s and winning. However, you just can not appreciate how kick ass this plane really is until you see it in person. Shanna got some magnificent shots, and I got some great video of the maneuvers this plane can do, but it will not do it justice.
The following set of pictures is great because of what Shanna captured. Not all of the photos are in the best light, but that's not why I'm showing them to you. Shanna caught the F-22 with its bay doors opened, and she also caught a sequence of photos showing the bay doors closing. We didn't realize she had these shots until we got home.
Below is the video of the F-22's flight demonstration. There was an interesting experience with our cameras at the show. The stealth aircraft wouldn't stay in focus a lot of the time ... weird.
