F-22 fighter makes its first combat appearance over Syria

The Pentagon's most advanced fighter plane made its combat debut in the U.S.-led strikes on Syria overnight, serving a crucial purpose for a sensitive mission that depended on stealth.
Pilots flying the F-22 Raptor flew bombing runs over Syria to target the militant Islamic State group, U.S. officials said.
Officials didn't say what targets the F-22 struck, but said it was used later in the series of strikes, which lasted several hours.
