TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Less than two weeks after the F-22's 10-year anniversary of arriving here, Team Tyndall achieved its 25,000th F-22 sortie during a 43rd Fighter Squadron Basic Course training mission Oct. 7. The 43rd FS is the only squadron in the world that trains and develops F-22 pilots. The students learn air-to-air combat techniques during their B-course training by primarily flying sorties against the T-38 Talon from the 325th Training Support Squadron and other fighters replicating adversary aircraft.
