Air Force F-22 Raptor Going Supersonic

I love this picture and thought I'd share it with you guys:

GULF OF ALASKA (June 22, 2009) An Air Force F-22 Raptor executes a supersonic flyby over the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). John C. Stennis is participating in Northern Edge 2009, a joint exercise focusing on detecting and tracking units at sea, in the air and on land.

I read the pentagon wants to cancel the Raptor program!
In a way thats fine with me since I work for the company that builds the F-15Eagle which will probably have more sales over the next few yrs if the Raptor gets cancelled.

WOW :shock:
That would suck if they cancel it, it shows we still dominate the air.
