  • When will the F-22 raptor be retired?

Sorry, but my crystal ball is at the cleaners. In other words, the distant future is uncertain and unpredictable. Whether the F-22 is retired at a certain point depends upon a complex blend of factors that are simply not predictable that far ahead. Many aircraft have exceeded their expected usage by 20 years or more. Others have been retired early.

The F-22 is a new fighter plane. In case you have not noticed, F-15 Eagles are still in use and they are around 30 to 40 years old.

There is a projected retirement date and what actually happens. Look at the USAF B52 and KC135. Both are going on 50 years old and they still do not have a planned retirement date for them. They at one time planned on retiring the A10 but they proved to be so useful in Desert Storm that they decided to keep them around. The F22 is probably going to be around for 30+ years, specially since we have nothing in the pipeline to replace it.

that's anybody's guess....especially if they keep upgrading them. I mean you have aircraft like the F-15 that are still in service, AND the B-52.....which is FIFTY YEARS OLD but is still in service thanks to it being constantly updated to the point it's actually slated to stay in service another 20yrs or so on top of that.

They'll be around for another 40 years, but the earliest ones and ones with structural problems will start heading to the spare parts bin before that.

I don't know when they will be retired, but there is now an enhanced radar that can spot them. That is the trouble with all of these overpriced technological marvels. It doesn't take long for somebody to catch up with them.
