To demonstrate its maneuverability and agility, the United States Air Force had set up the demo team for the aircraft, which has just released a stunning video leaving jaws dropped and eyes wide open about its exquisiteness.

The video, which has beautiful and cinematic high-resolution slow-motion footages of the F-22 makes one feel goosebumps. It shows the aircraft performing various maneuvers and the related vapor clouds add to the exciting video.

The new video, titled “INSANE F-22 Raptor Hype Video” indeed lives up to its name and was released by the team on their YouTube channel.

In addition, the video wasn’t just like any other aircraft promotional film; it was a 360-degree video, which showed the F-22 maneuver around the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson as part of JBER Salutes in March 2020.

“Although most of the airshows this year were canceled because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the pandemic has not completely prevented the F-22 Raptor Demo team to perform some displays at the few airshows which have been held in a “Drive-In” format with cars, filled with people in attendance, like the New York International “Drive-In” Air Show at the end of August, or the 2020 Wings Over Houston Air Show and Bell Fort Worth Alliance Air Show last month,” reported the Aviationist.

The F-22 Raptor Demo Team is based at the Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Virginia, at the home of Air Combat Command. The team flies the USAF’s Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor at airshows around the globe, performing air maneuvers that demonstrate the supermaneuverability of the F-22s.

These demonstrations include the power loop, split, and tail slide, as well as a high-speed pass and dedication pass. These maneuvers are based on those designed for combat operations but are performed at much lower altitudes than most pilots are certified to fly at.

The US Air Force approved the demonstration in 2007, replacing Air Combat Command’s F-15C demonstration team.
