Heres another name I forgot all about the flying dinosaurs.

QUETZALCOATLUS
Named after the Aztec feathered god Quetzalcoatl

Quetzalcoatlus was a flying reptile whose wing-span was just under 36 feet wide (10.96 m)

Wing Span of the, F-35A = 35.10 ft (10.70 m)

Pretty uncanny the wingspans are just about the same

Now if only it had a shorter name that was easier to pronounce.

Well I'm not sure if Havoc was officially adopted or not. But I'm not sure the F-35 is worthy of such a name. The USAF generally has its fighters seperated into two groups. The high-end expensive fighters, and the not as good but still decent "cost-effective" fighters. Now the F-22 is the high end fighter while the F-35 was designed as the cost-effective fighter. I'm not sure any "cost-effective" fighter will ever deserve such an awesome name. It should belong to a high end fighter such as the F-22. Interestingly enough the Wraiths in Starcraft are cool because they can cloak. For all you non-sci-fi fans out there cloak means turn invisible. It was almost made for the F-35. Too bad a PC game took it. How about the Baneshee, or the phantom.

I'd say the Hummingbird. It doesn't sound that cool, but it can hover like a hummingbird can, so I think it's pretty fitting.

Whatever the name is I just hope the air force doesn't stick with the JSF. It sounds bad the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter...ewww.
Has anyone thought of the Black Scoter its a bird name I think it sounds kool.

well there is the Night hawk, the black hawk, the flight hawk,.......how about the Hawk? probably has been used before so it could be the hawk II. Then you could use the old AIM-7's name of Sparrow because the missile was only mediocre compared to the AMRAAm of today. But the hummingbird does seem okay

How about the buzzard

How'd they send it back to the late 50's then?

You'd think that a missile from 9150 would have done a little better than it did.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Icarus Daedalus's dumb a$$ son was the one that flew to close to the sun even though his father warned him.

Python is a name of the Israeli close A2A missile. Plus the sparrow I think is still being used in some aircraft today not sure if its being used in the US that is why I said "the missile was" instead of "the missile is"
