Perhaps, perhaps not not....It might fly as they claim....but looking at the moulded material (looks like fibreglass??) on the inside of the cockpit
walls I'd be dollars to dounts that it doesn't fly fast, and the pilots will not be too keen on it flying a 2nd time!
the rear/main wing looks implausibly thick and I notice the video dose nt actualy show a good shot of the rear/exhaust - so I'm going with a
mock-up/model rather than a real flying a/c, regardless of what they claim.
Without going completely through all our discussion, it's been decided it's more a bomber than a fighter, and will use a variant of the J85 engine,
and has no exhaust nozzle, so it's probably not afterburning.

It's also unfinished. If you look closely at the instrument panel you can see no wiring at all behind parts of it. It even looks like it has an 8
track or CD player on the bottom of the instrument panel. And no external panels at all. It'll be interesting to see if it really flies or not.
