Thanks for the imbed! I tried to see if someone posted this before but could not find it under a Paul Metz search, and YF-23 produces way too many hits.
It's great to see seniors doing this, but also a bit scary to think that Paul Metz is one of them! But suddenly when you realise he started his air-force career even before I was born...and I am uncomfortably close to 50...

I'm not entirely convinced about how F-22 is better than YF-23. I've never been able to go through tests results but the information I got was that the -23 won in just about every step during testing phase and it performed better than -22. I'm willing to bet that YF-22(and F-22 later) won mostly because of marketing. Happens everywhere...
