Awsome dog fight.
by using thrust-vectoring, (the F-22) is able to fly at extreme angles of attack while changing directions at high speeds.
The thrust-vectoring system deflects the engines' full thrust
by up to 20 degrees a second
The F119 engine nozzle for the F-22 is the world's first full production vectoring nozzle,
fully integrated into the aircraft/ engine combination as original equipment. The two-dimensional nozzle vectors thrust 20 degrees up and down for improved aircraft agility.
This vectoring increases the roll rate of the aircraft by 50%, and has features that contribute to the aircraft stealth requirements.

A10 is probably my all around favorite.
Mostly because of this (close up of the gun I took): www.abovetopsecret.com...
But, I'll always love the planes from WW II, such as the mustang, spitfire, etc.
Pic I took last year of the A10 and P38 flying together:
