Why were F-22 Raptor Jets circling over LA the morning after ‘missile’ incident?

Based on recent news reports the story of the California missile has been ‘laid to rest’. By the media, and, the Pentagon. The same media who relied on an email from the Pentagon. An email which was sent out 36 hours after the incident. A Pentagon email which stated the missile was ‘likely’ a jet. In the Pentagon email, the adjective ‘likely’, used four times.

FOX News:

The Department of Defense said Wednesday that it was satisfied the event was likely caused by an airplane.

“With all the information that we have gathered over the last day and a half about this condensation trail off the coast of southern California on Monday night, both within the DoD and other U.S. government agencies, we have no information to suggest this was anything other than a contrail caused by an aircraft,” said Col. David Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman.

“As stated yesterday, NORAD and USNORTHCOM determined that there was no threat to the U.S. homeland.”

Lapan said that in the mind of the DoD this case is closed.

Lapan said the government looked at lots of data sources other than the CBS news tape. He would not get into the details of what those data sources were, but said that evidence helped determine this was most likely an aircraft. But most importantly, it was the response from all other government agencies saying they did not launch anything that convinced them this was likely an aircraft.

“The Department of Defense, after gathering info over the last 36 hours from within the Department of Defense and other U.S. government agencies, is satisfied the contrail was likely caused by an aircraft.”

The phrase ‘most likely’ and the adjective ‘likely’, the conclusion made by the Pentagon 36 hours after the incident. Rather curious, the 36 hours response time from the Pentagon in relation to an incident which concerned national security. The 36 hours needed to come to the conclusion the ‘contrail’ was ‘most likely from a jet’. Even more curious, an eyewitness report of B-2 Stealth bombers over Northern California ‘headed for the coast’ during the same time period the mystery ‘missile’ was filmed. Another eyewitness, an USAF vet who lives in Malibu who claimed they saw a missile, reported seeing increased military helicopter activity and shot photos of two stealth jet fighters, F-22 Raptor jets, circling over LA the morning after the ‘missile’ event.

The following, a tip received by DKBP:

Hey, I live in Malibu and saw the MISSILE!!! I am USAF vet was stationed at Vandenberg AFB, a missile base, and have seen quite a few launches…

THIS WAS A MISSILE!!! and if it wasn’t, then why on 11/10/10, 9:50am, did I take the attached picture of 2 F-22 raptor fighter jets circling LA???? These are top of the line fighter jets and I have NEVER seen one around here….. Seeing a lot more military helicopters flying past too….

F-22 Raptor fighter jets have stealth technology, the ability to fly undetected by radar.

F-22 Raptor website:

Continuous developments in military aircraft technology have produced a new sort of defensive weapon: Stealth.

Planes can now fly invisibly into enemy airspace, drop a payload, and fly back out without being detected, identified or attacked.

Where are F-22′s based?

An October 29, 2010, report from Military Aerospace:

MARIETTA, Ga., 29 Oct. 2010. Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] F-22 Raptor 4168 flew from the company’s Marietta facility on its delivery flight to Langley Air Force Base, Va. Raptor 4168 is the 15th F-22 delivered to the U.S. Air Force this year, the 168th overall. Lockheed Martin has delivered 88 consecutive F-22s on or ahead of schedule.

Two squadrons of F-22s are assigned to Air Combat Command’s 1st Fighter Wing at Langley AFB. Two squadrons also are assigned to the 3rd Wing at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska. Raptor pilots and maintainers train at Tyndall AFB, Fla., while operational flight testing is conducted at Edwards AFB, Calif., and Nellis AFB, Nev. New F-22s continue to roll from the production line and will soon operate out of Holloman AFB, N.M., and Hickam AFB, Hawaii.

A November 4, 2010 report from the U.S. Air Force Aim Points website:

JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska — The 90th Fighter Squadron, 3rd Wing, deployed F-22s and personnel to Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla., Oct. 30, to participate in exercise Combat Archer, the air-to-air evaluation portion of the United States Air Force’s Weapons Systems Evaluation Program.

The 90th FS is training and being evaluated with the maintainers of the 90th Aircraft Maintenance Unit and their reserve counterparts from the 302nd Fighter Squadron, 477th Fight Group, for this temporary duty assignment.

During this three-week deployment, pilots and maintainers are working together to validate the air-to-air combat capability of the newest F-22 Raptors in the Air Force inventory.

The jets assigned to the 90th FS have never fired live air-to-air missiles before and this deployment will ensure the squadron is ready for any contingency operation, leaders said.

Combat Archer provides a unique opportunity for our fighter pilots to experience firing a live air-to-air missile prior to combat, said Lt. Col. Joseph Kunkel, 90th FS commander.

“Particularly because these jets are brand new, this program allows first-time jets and pilots to experience what it feels like to fire a missile while in flight,” Kunkel said.

According to the report the 90th Fighter Squadron, 3rd Wing, F-22′s out of Elemendorf Air Force Base located near Anchorage, Alaska, are down in Florida in the midst of a three-week training exercie.

With the Elmendorf F-22 squadron deployed to Florida, the only other F-22 squadron based at Langley AFB in Virginia, the question of why two F-22′s were spotted and photographed by an USAF vet ‘circling’ over LA the morning after the ‘missile’ incident?
