May 3: The last Lockheed Martin F-22A Raptor has been delivered to the US Air Force.

On May 2 the 195th and last F-22 Raptor was handed over to the US Air Force leadership in a ceremony at the Lockheed Martin’s Marietta plant in Georgia.

A host of distinguished officials were at the event, including local, state and national elected officials and Lockheed Martin employees who helped build the F-22 Raptor fleet.

This final Raptor joins a fleet of 187 operational F-22s and will go to the 3rd Wing at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. In all, Lockheed Martin delivered 195 F-22s to the Air Force beginning in 1997, with eight used as test aircraft.
