F-22

There is an air show here in Stuart this weekend And the F-22 raptor will be flying. I'm sitting here watching them practice and I have to say that thing is insane!

It is bad ass. I got to put my hands on an F35 at Pax river and watch vertical take off and landings for a couple days. It is also another badass aircraft.

If they do the standard Air Force demonstration show you gotta see it. They do a high angle of attack pass at low speed and then hover the aircraft on the engine thrust before BACKING UP!! and then flopping the aircraft over on its back and zooming off. Its just amazing. The vertical takeoff climb to 40,000 feet from takeoff that the AF pilots used to do on the delivery flight was always fun to watch too.

I spent twenty years working on the F-22 - what a great airplane.

I was going to say...if someone here knows a thing or three about F-22s, it's JackW!
Very neat picture with the Porsche.

I saw the F-22 at Oceana a few years back---very cool.
