F-22 Flying Test Bed is tip of the spear for Raptor mission systems
Members of the F-22 Flying Test Bed team pose for a photo in front of the highly modified Boeing 757 May 3. The FTB routinely flies with real Raptors both at Edwards and Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada in order to gain an early look at F-22 mission software before the software is released to developmental flight test, mainly at Edwards. The FTB can fly up to 30 crewmembers. (U.S. Air Force photo by Ethan Wagner)
