OK guys. The Raptor does have re-heat, however it also has the ability to supercruise, i.e. sustain supersonic flight without the aid of re-heat.

The F-119 engines produce about 25,000lbs of thrust without burner (about the same as an F-15/16 engine WITH burner), and about 36,000lbs thrust with burner.

I doubt very much what Norio saw was an F/A-22.The fact that it was loud, had an afterburner, was supposedly triangular in shape and was illuminated by a green light is hardly enough to lead to any possible conclusions.
