In 1985, the U.S. Air Force requested proposals for an Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) and selected two teams to build prototypes, one led by Lockheed and one by Northrop.  The Lockheed-Boeing-General Dynamics team proposed what was designated the YF-22 Raptor which first flew in 1990.  Both fighters were designed to include stealth technology.  The U.S. Air Force selected the YF-22 over the Northrop-McDonnell Douglas YF-23.

The F-22 entered operational status in late 2005.
