Pilots flying the YF-22 prototype used the radio call signLightning” during test
flights in 1990, and it was widely thought that the F-22 would have that as its
official nickname. However, it was formally christened “Raptor" by the Air Force in
1997. Lockheed built the 200,000-square-foot L-22 Building south of the runway
in the early 1990s to house those working on the F-22 program; however, these
pictures were snapped in the B-1 assembly building. On the wall are two signs.

Lightning. Unlike air force pilots whose primary duty is flying, navy pilots are also
assigned a ground job. As officers, they are expected to be leaders and
managers of people. The ground job is supposed to be their first responsibility as

of Evelyn Waugh's classic novel about foreign correspondents, became an
interim name. I adopted it as a marine radio call sign, since callsign rules
required stating the name and number of your vessel when calling. Then, one

monogrammed with “Scoop, Northeast Harbor” for all three of us from the Sporty's
Tool Shop catalog.

For the battalion's call sign is Bengal, a reference to their military pedigree
begotten from the Flying Tigers of World War II fame. The original Flying Tigers
were hired guns for Chiang Kai Shek before America entered the war against
Japan. Then they were incorporated into the Army Air Corps, receiving an official
number. When the Air Force became a separate service in 1947, they took the
