Yesterday arrived to Chile the USAF F-22 Raptor Demo Team, two F-22 Raptor and a KC-10 tanker, to participate in FIDAE 2016, the most important Air Fair in South America.

"27 " of them arrived for an air show? How many will remain stationed there?

Or does "Air Fair" mean like an arms bazar. Jets for sale, like piggies and goats at the country fair?

When they were up here at Boeing, we were able to get about 15 feet from them.

That doesn't look like your typical aircraft parking spot

All you need is some Tequila.

And some bad decisions.

The F22 raptor is a magnificent piece of engineering, you can definitely see the integrated Roswell alien technology. That will keep those damn Russians at bay. /sarcasm

But really, it is an amazing plane.

They turned left when they were supposed to turn right so they just parked where they could.

Is that why it's in the car park?

They use parking lots sometimes when they need extra parking. The flying aircraft need to be kept separate do they require ramp space. If there's not enough, they'll commandeer a car parking lot.

We all know the parking lot is outside an all you can eat place with a booze license and who's going to tell someone in 2-300 million dollars worth of aircraft that they can't have a burger and a few beers before flying back (would the internal cannon be loaded not that the poor owner would know ?
)

And I thought the coolest thing I'd ever see at Pudahuel was the An-124 that was on the tarmac when I flew in last May...

Lan's dreamliners are a close second, or maybe they're third after the old 737-200's I flew into Valdivia and Osorno nearly 20 years ago. As a kid, those old Lan/Ladeco box lunches were nearly as cool as watching the clamshell thrust reversers do their thing on those dinky southern runways...

So when I'm in Seattle in a few months time and I find the last parking space in the public car park has been taken up by a $300 million dollar jet fighter,I can park my rental car on what I think you call the ramp over there (apron in the UK)?

Lol. No unfortunately not. That would be cool though. The museum will occasionally block off a section of the museum parking lot for special guests. (The F-22/f-15's on that day, a 737 bringing in kids for women in flight day, the 727 prototype a few weeks back, ect.).

Unfortunately people coming to the museum are on their own to find parking. There is usually enough overflow parking to accommodate those events though.

I was born stateside (thanks, Pinochet!), but my dad's family has some pretty deep roots there.
