From Viper to Raptor:

The airmen of the Virginia Air National Guard’s 192nd Fighter Wing at Sandston, Va., took their last flights and performed their last maintenance checks on the wing’s F-16 Vipers on June 20 as promised. The transition they began two years ago to integrate with the 1st Fighter Wing at Langley AFB, Va., is almost complete, making them the first Air Guard unit to fly the service’s new F-22A Raptors.
