The F-22 starting it’s engines is a sight to see.

We all know the F-22 Raptor is one bad, bad jet – but have you ever seen one starting it’s engines up? Well let me tell you, it’s amazing. This video of an F-22 Raptor starting it’s engines was filmed by Staff Sgt. William Jackson with the 325th Fighter Wing, Public Affairs unit. The burst of smoke you see is coming from the F-22 Raptor’s air turbine starter system, which is a small turbine that is powered by compressed air. That initial rotation is what jump starts the F-22’s way bigger Pratt & Whitney F119 engines. After this check out a jet lovers dream – The Mach Loop.

Night time flying operations from Red Flag 16-1 at Nellis AFB, NV. F-22 Raptors from Tyndall AFB are launched simultaneously with other fighter jets, bombers and support aircraft from squadrons around the world.
