The F-22 Raptor is arguably the best stealth fighter ever built.
So it comes as no surprise that much of the aircraft is highly classified — especially the cockpit.
In fact, all of the instruments and displays in the Raptor’s cockpit are classified, an Air Combat Command public affairs officer told Business Insider.
As such, no photos of the nuts and bolts of the cockpit have been released. A few do seem to exist in the weeds of social media, but they are unverified.
Still, there are plenty of verified and official images that give a glimpse into the cockpit.

Entering service in 2005, the F-22 had one of the first “all-glass” cockpits, which means it has digital displays and instruments.
It was also the first aircraft to be compatible with night vision goggles.
The F-22 is fitted with a hands-on throttle and stick control system, allowing the pilot to operate the Raptor without taking his hands off the controls.
