Raptor pilot Captain Mike Trujillo sounds like he rehearsed that whole speech.
All in all, Im not that impressed with his little flying machine,,HAHAHA
Im still a fan of the F-4 Phantom, I know its old as dirt and many think it is ugly but I dont know it just has the right feel for me.
I wish there was a way to see the raptor in real action, see it compete with an A-typical jet fighter like f-18 hornet or F15 Eagle.
I would enjoy seeing how maneuverable it is compared to the older generation.

Its the thrust-vectoring which makes the maneuverability superior, and also the electronics. Also has a lower radar signature. This plane is nothing new though. The "UFOs" will still dance circles around it.
