The F-22 Raptor is one of the DoD's most controversial weapons programs. The modern, stealthy fighter has been criticized for years for costing too much and more recently for so far unsolved problem of pilots suffering from hypoxia-like symptoms on the plane. The problem causes pilots to become dizzy or worse and some blame the problem for one fatal crash.
But for all its problems, the photo above shows it is also a beautiful aircraft. Air Force Master Sgt. Jeremy Lock snapped this photo of an F-22 as it received fuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker over the Atlantic Ocean, July 10, 2012.
