If God had wanted the army to fly, he would have made the sky brown.
If God meant man to fly, He'd have given us bigger wallets.
If God had meant for men to fly he would have made their bones hollow and not their heads.

Actually they've already previously declared that the F-22 demo teams will not be flying any air shows until next year. Very unfortunate but it's already the end of the air show season anyway with only a handfull to go so it's not really even worth it when so many shows lost the Raptor. The F-22 serves as a headliner to most shows so by now many may have found a substitute like Heavy Metal or the Patriots to compensate.
