The Air Force ordered four F-22s from Lockheed Martin under a $474 million contract announced on Oct. 29, 2009. These four aircraft will constitute Lot 10 production on the F-22 line and will complete the Air Force’s program of record for 187 airframes based on current planning. Factoring the one production-version F-22 lost in a crash in 2004, the Air Force will have a force of 186 F-22s. Here, an F-22 in flight over Andersen AFB, Guam.
