Last F-22 Raptor jet to roll of Ga. assembly line

MARIETTA -- The final F-22 Raptor fighter jet is scheduled to roll off the assembly line at a Lockheed Martin plant in Marietta on Tuesday.

Reports say that the jet will be the last of 187 F-22s produced for the U.S. Air Force, completing its operational fleet.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the F-22 features a mix of stealth, advanced sensors and advanced air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons.

About 2,000 workers have assembled the jets at the Marietta plant since the late 1990s.

what the story doesn't report is are the 2,000 workers going to be unemployed or reassigned somewhere?

Obama is also into downsizing our Military any way he can. This is only the begining,just wait.
