BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The F-22 Raptor Demo Team will join the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds to double headline the Cocoa Beach Air Show on April 17-18 on Florida’s Space Coast.

The F-22 Raptor is the fastest and most maneuverable fighter jet in the world today.

Combined with its sleek aerodynamic design, this allows the F-22 to “Supercruise” at 1.5 times the speed of sound without using fuel consuming afterburner.

The F-22’s twin engines produce more thrust than any other fighter.

With unique thrust vectoring and advanced flight controls allow it to outmaneuver any other aircraft.

The F-22 Raptor demo puts thrust vectoring on full display during its demonstration defying imagination as it climbs straight up, stops in mid-air, then reverses towards the ground before flipping the nose around in a summersault at near zero forward speed.

The F-22 makes sharp, sudden turns displacing and compress air into vapor and you often see the Raptor creating its own weather system with massive clouds that engulf the jet.
