Default F-22 Raptors over Langley::+More Pictures

Well I'm sure alot of you have at least heard of Langley Air Force Base. Well I'm going to Thomas Nelson Community College which happens to be right outside the base. And man, talk about jet noise! The new Raptors are a good bit louder than the F-18s that were flying here not that long ago. Anyway the jet noise doesn't bother me, i love it, though i could see how it could get annoying after a while I however will always enjoy it...i think. They flew extremely low over campus, it has to be in the 300-500 foot range Its really awesome looking and sounding!

Today during my lunch break I tried to get a video and some pictures of them, I only managed 2 pictures and the battery died I coulda had 3 more F-22 pics If I hadn't taken the three pics of my local twin b-ville earlier in the morning.

Anyway heres 1 right over Templin Hall:


and 2:


I wont have time tomorrow, next chance I get, which is probably Tuesday, I'll get some more and add to this thread...

Enjoy for now

Edit: there was an article in the paper yesterday, TNCC is mentioned in it, theres some video with the article online too:
