To keep the Raptor’s radar signature at a minimum, small doors and vents appear seemingly out of nowhere during certain functions, reminding us that a fighter jet still lies beneath its spaceship-like appearance. Its startup sequence also looks and sounds like something out of science fiction.
One of the most important programs that the U.S. Air Force is undertaking is far from glamorous and comes with a funny name: Talon HATE. But this podded system will be vital for eliminating communications barriers between the F-22 and F-15C/D fleets, as well as other weapon systems. It’s showing for the first time on…
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.

Catalina Island just got a little more patriotic. Wildlife biologists from the Catalina Island Conservancy, which administers the majority of the island, announced last week that three bald eagle chicks hatched there, and they've outfitted their nest with a camera. You can watch the chicks grow from the comfort of…

It's not another reboot of Red Dawn, mind you, but rather the second round of the Red Flag war games held at Nellis Air Force Base. Check out these sweet shots of the F-22 Raptor—America's first stealth fighter—staying sharp…
If "Jurassic Park" taught me anything, it's that Velociraptors are terrifyingly awesome. So hearing Sam Neil give that classic speech brings me right back to that fascination. And the terror. Don't forget the terror. [This Is Colossal]
