Gen. John Corley, Air Combat Command boss, was doing his job when he offered his professional military assessment that limiting F-22 Raptor production to just 187 aircraft represents "high risk" under the current national military strategy. He offered that opinion to Air Force leaders and again to Congress, when directly questioned by Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) earlier this month. Here, SrA. Rick Alexander marshals in an F-22 after an August 2003 training exercise out of Langley AFB, Va., where ACC is headquartered.
