An F-22A Raptor stealth superfighter is seen in a hangar Thursday during a change-of-command ceremony for the 90th Fighter Squadron at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage. Lt. Col. Michael Shower assumed command from Lt. Col. Colin Wright. The F-22A Raptor will be replacing the squadron's F-15E Strike Eagles, which will be sent to Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho. The 90th Fighter Squadron plans to officially accept the Raptor on Aug. 8. The jet in the photo is being used for maintenance training.
