The F-22 is getting better and better each day. They just made it here recently to carry more pay load. I feel like I am flying in this picture.

Hmmm ... I was under the obviously mistaken impression that the Raptor sported canards to make it more maneuverable.

Nice looking plane, though.

No, the F-22 doesn't have canards. I believe you're thinking of the new Euro-fighter (cant' remember what they've named it). They say it's unsurpassed in maneuverability, but the Raptor holds the advantage in stealth and supercruise (afterburner speed without afterburners). The pilots say it's almost unfair using it in a dogfight.
