TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- While snow fell on the F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team's headquarters at Langley Air Force Base, Va., the team's pilot took to the skies over the Florida panhandle to practice the routine for the upcoming air show season.
"I love flying here," said Capt. John Cummings, F-22 Demonstration pilot who was stationed at Tyndall for F-15 Eagle and F-22 pilot training. "This is where I learned to fly fighter aircraft."
While Cummings will do most of his training at Langley, Air Force Instructions require him to make three off-station practice flights of the routine before performing at an air show.
