It's possible. They're flying around getting familiar with US ATC procedures and range areas.

Awesome planes

I have seen these "dancing" in the sky with f 15's from Lakenheath over the local bombing range for a few years

Last truly great British built fighter was the lightning sadly....but these ain't too shoddy for a European effort rather one of the than a Rafael or Gripen

All over it.



That's a little misleading when they say it could smash into airliners. If you read the report, yes it's more likely than other aircraft to hit one, but the chances of it are very slim. Even the F-35 doesn't have collision avoidance...

Yeah I know. The far bigger concern is an ACM midair.

yep. come to think of it, i wonder how many fighters actually have collision avoidance installed that are US fighters?

Not many honestly. They've played around with the idea but its never gone anywhere.

Cheer up, This design, published in Flight in 1987, was the P.120, a fighter design that BAe was pursuing independently that they were confident could be built as a collaborative aircraft or unilaterally for the RAF if an international agreement couldn't be reached. As you can see it looks quite familiar. A British fighter.



Interestingly, the text stated that the design features a wing design favoured by the RAF, though the collaborative aircraft would likely feature a compound sweep leading edge like the EAP.

I guess not
