USAF | Star Wars Canyon | Lockheed Martin F-22

Hey IFC!
This is a very interesting flight. So a little background info, the United States Military uses a canyon in the mountains of Southern California for fighter pilot training. The canyons official name is Rainbow canyon but it’s commonly nicknamed Star Wars Canyon. I have flown down it a lot before this one to get some prior experience with it before having an infinite flight showdown, so let’s hope these look cool!

Great photos! I’ve actually been to Star Wars Canyon in real life, but I didn’t see any fighters. :(

I think It was closed a year or two ago after an F/A-18 crashed there.

Darn I should’ve posted this photo from the other day it was so good
