    Before an F-22 Raptor takes off for training or a combat mission, maintainers and weapons Airmen are seen on the flight line preparing, servicing and readying the jet to contest any airspace.

A small team of behind-the-scenes Airmen ensure those piloting the stealth aircraft are flight and combat capable.
