The Navy version isn't the STOVL, that's the B, for the Marines. The C is the Navy version, which is the largest of the three.

Well the link from Zaphod58 said they have 183 F-22's. I think they should get some more. How many F-35's are they planning on getting? Is the U.S. the only country that gets F-22's, or are we already selling them to everybody?

No. F22's are US only.

3:26 looks like an FA18 with an Aussie livery on the tail...

Like the way you can see the stealth coating on the canopy - you cant on the ground.

Nice film Sam - wonder if they retract the gear so quick so as to get more lift?

That would be my guess too. Since the body of the jet provides some of it's lift and the gear out would take away from it.

Gear up equals less drag and more acceleration also the F-22 makes so much thrust at full mil power it would hit 250 knots very fast which is about the speed most jets need to retract the landing gear to avoid damage.

Thanks for that link. I like the F-22 better than the F-35. I noticed in that link that it started out as F-22, but as of 2005 they call it F/A-22. Does the attack part of fighter/attack mean that it was decided to also use it for attacking targets on the ground, but originally it was meant to be strictly for air to air combat?

The F-14 and F-16 have just the fighter designation, while the F/A-18 was always F/A wasn't it? I recognized it was Nellis as soon as I saw the mountains at the beginning of the 1st video. Dry barren ugly mountains.

Is the F-22 strictly an Air Force plane?



It only went to the F/A-22 for a short while, then right back to F-22A. Here's a pic where you can see it on the tail. It says F/A-22...

You should see how the B-2 gear retracts. One of the cooler things I got to see.


Not as cool as the air refueling rc receptacle when they open it. Lol

That boom didn't seem to have very good depth perception. lol He stopped the bomber too early and extended the boom way early.
