yes, it is sad. And those 300 or so will have to do the job currently done by some 1500 F-15s.
Guess something will have to go.

The U.S. Air Force fixed a pice option with Lockheed Martin in 1998 for 6 LRIP (low rate initial production) aircraft. The Air Froce fixed price contract options with Lockheed Martin of $503 million for two F-22 PRTV (production representative test vehicle aircraft. They are schedule to be delivered in Nov 2001 through Jan 2002. The two F-22's have undergone extreme testing, which includes 200 test hours and are currently flying at Edwards Air force base.

**My cousin worked for Lockheed Martin in Marietta, GA and he lets me know all the cool stuff about the F22.

Its great having a cousin who has worked on military aircraft and continues to do so. After the F-22 project was completed, he moved to CT and now works for Sikorsky. He shows me all the plans for these awesome helicopters and stuff. He has also worked for Grumman. When the F-22 had its first test flight he was there and everyone that worked on the project received a copy of the test flight which he showed me and i cant tell u how awesome it is.
