Lockheed Martin Corp. has officially delivered the final F-22 Raptor to the Air Force, the company announced Wednesday.

In a ceremony at Lockheed's aeronautics site in Marietta, Ga., senior leaders formally turned over the 195th F-22 plane to the Air Force senior leaders.

The event marked the culmination of Lockheed's delivery of the final fifth generation stealth fighter aircraft.

Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska will house the final Raptor jet for the Air Force’s 3rd Wing.

The Air Force will also add the new Raptor to a fleet of 187 operational F-22 aircraft and uses eight aircraft for testing.

In late March, the Air Force awarded Lockheed a $664 million contract for F-22 support and sustainment.
