F-22 during Deliberate Strike Night: testing stealth abilities to conduct attacks during the hours after the sun sets.

These cool photographs were taken by a KC-135 Stratotanker assigned to the 509th Weapons Squadron, Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, as it performed aerial refueling on an F-22 Raptor stealth jet assigned to the 433rd Weapons Squadron, Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada.


The 5th generation multi-role radar-evading plane was involved in the United States Air Force Weapons School’s Deliberate Strike Night over the Nevada Test and Training Range on Jun. 16, 2016.

Deliberate Strike Night is part of the final seven-day Advanced Integration portion of the Weapons School curriculum.
