    Apparently still has plenty of reliability issues, to boot.

    I'm sure this was posted: F-22 Raptor at Farnborough Airshow 2008 - YouTube!

    Some of those are pretty impressive.

    On the other hand, the US is now training more drone operators than pilots. It's pretty clear which way the future lies.

    No plane can beat the F-15 eagle in terms of looks.

    I don't agree.......in terms of looks I don't think any of the planes (perhaps ever) beat the F-16 or F-104 starfighter

    I also used to like the F-86 sabers

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    compared to the sleek jets above the f-15 eagle looks clunky and unwieldy
