How many more Raptors will Congress fund? On June 25, the Senate Armed Services Committee added money to the 2010 defense authorization bill for seven more F-22 Raptors. Just the week before, House counterparts added 12 Raptors. And, several lawmakers believe Congress ultimately will fund another 20 for 2010. Here, four F-22s, assigned to the 90th Fighter Squadron, Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, fly over Andersen AFB, Guam, May 13, 2009.
