F-22 Stealth Fighter Jet

NPR's Steve Inskeep reports on the new F-22 fighter jet. Each plane would cost at least $85 million to produce. Congress threatened the funding of the program in July, but the military and aircraft maker Lockheed have campaigned to save the F-22. A prototype will be unveiled to the public today.
