Agonizing Reappraisals A close-up view of the F-22 forward fuselage attached to the Boeing 757 FTB. The 757 FTB (N757A) is the first 757 built. Boeing installed the sensor wing in late 1998. ) e 757 FTB configuration shows the numerous F-22 avionics that are being tested. Test racks and seating for more than 25 technicians shown. ) 27 28 F-22 RAPTOR Internal modifications to the twin-jet 757 include structural supports for the special nose and sensor wing structure and the installation of unique electrical power, liquidcooling, and instrumentation systems.

It also contains a major part of the aircraft's environmental control system and fuel, electrical, hydraulic, and engine subsystems. The aft fuselage section has to contend with the high heat from the engines as well as the stresses of supersonic speed and high-gmaneuvers. The aft fuselage is 19 ft long and 12 ft wide, and weighs 5000 Ib as shipped. It is 67 percent titanium alloys, 22 percent aluminum alloys and 11 percent composite materials by weight. About 25 percent (by weight) of the aft fuselage consists of large electron-beam-welded titanium alloy forward and aftward booms.

At the end of EMD in the year 2002, F-22A number 1 will be placed into flyable storage at Edwards AFB. The planned disposition of F-22A number 2 has not yet been determined. While F-22A number three is to be used for testing any nonavionics modifications or changes to the airframe (possibly a two-seat cockpit arrangement). At least three additional F-22As (which ones remain to be seen) will keep on flying for follow-on avionics testing (primarily the Block 4 avionics software that will include helmet-mounted cueing), AIM-9X Sidewinder missile integration, and Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) send-capability evaluations.
