The first "production" F-22 Raptor arrived at Nellis AFB yesterday (Tuesday) a little before 10am. Quote from an email from our reader Jim, who saw it land (thanks, Jim!):

"The first Raptor for the 'Green Bats' of the 422nd TES (OT) arrived at 0954 PST today. Accompanied by an 422nd TES F-15C, F-22 #4012 completed four closed circuits before a full-stop."
