The one-type-design Turbo-Raven boasts a 750 HP Pratt & Whitney PT6A-25C turbine engine coupled to a Hartzell 3 blade composite propeller.

F-22 Raptor Video - California Capital Airshow - 2007

New F-22 Raptor video produced at the California Capital Air Show in 2007 in Sacramento, California. Pilot Major "Max" Moga describes each maneuver he performed at the show.

The flight demonstration was nothing short of spectacular! The thrust vectoring nozzles really enhance the maneuverability. Watching the flight control system work during the tail slide was mind boggling- every flight control surface was "twitching" as the F-22 started sliding backwards.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels display of precision flight is always enjoyable. The part of their show where the two solo pilots produce the illusion of a mirror image is one of the most popular(and challenging) photographic moments.
