The prototype 757 has been modified to serve as the testbed of F-22 radar and avionics.

The F-22 Avionics testbed has the nose of an F-22 mounted on its forward fuselage. A sensor wing is mounted above the cockpit. F-22 electronic warfare (EW) and communication, navigation and identification (CNI) sensors are mounted on the sensor wing. A simulated F-22 cockpit is installed in the cabin.

The F-22 Avionics testbed carries construction number 22212. It first flew on February 18, 1982. It first flew after modification on March 11, 1999.

I sometimes dress my dog up like that, he doesn't like it either.

First overseas deployment just happened for the F-22. Flying out of Okinawa. I got to visit there for a couple of weeks about 2 years ago. Very pretty.

I programmed the wing spars for the 1999 conversion.

757 started out as the 727-300, a stretch of the 727. I think the main wheels of the 757 were designed for the 727-300 and kept when the 723 was cancelled, 7N7 started, and then dovetailed with the 7X7...
