The visiting USAF F-35A's in England have recently made a run through the world famous Mach Loop. That makes both US fifth gen. fighters that have been run through the Loop.

Kind of a Tail of the Dragon for fighters.

That's pretty sick right there!! S&F

I once again got a chance to go down and see her at the Tyndall AFB airshow. Due to some close friends/contacts I got a chance to see her inside and out up close and personal and the cockpit always amazed me. So used to seeing Analog or at least majority analog gauges.

It's pretty impressive at full afterburner. Zaph and I saw/heard/felt them at last year's Red Flag. They do have the world's most powerful jet engine fit to a fighter.

Yea it is one loud jet. The people in Ft. Walton near Eglin AFB complained A LOT and still do when she is out of there. Unlike the F-22 I haven't heard it enough myself yet to tell what it is while flying low. The F-22 makes a distinct high pitch whine when low and slow.

That was f#cking sick. At 0:30 to 0:40, it's almost invisible. I like the way it deflects the light.

They were going out over Cheyenne Road the last time I was at the Petro, and there was a big difference between them and the Vipers even at that distance.
