At the Wings Over Wayne Air Show, he will have one of the best, not to mention fastest, seats in the house — the cock- pit of a U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor. Major Daniel "Rock" Dickinson is the United States Air Force F-22 Raptor Aerial Demonstration Team commander and pilot based at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia. Dickinson said he is excited to be a part of the air show, especially since his F-22 will get to fly in forma- tion with a vintage P-51 Mustang — symbolic of the evolution of the country's air power. Just as importantly, the formation is a way to pay tribute to the Air Force veterans who came before him, he said. "We are super excited to bring the Raptor into the Seymour Johnson Air Show," Dickinson said in a tele- phone interview. "It is going to be fantastic. They are one of the bases, with Langley being right up the F-22 will fly in formation with a vintage P-51 Mustang, which is symbolic of the evolution of the country's air power and a way to pay tribute to Air Force vets.
