It's photos like these that make me hate the fact that I got too tall to be able to fly fighters. Got too tall to be able to fly just about anything for that matter. So I became a journalist instead. I love how vicious and sleek the F-22 looks, I'm in no hurry for our country to go to war, but I'm also excited to see how the F-22 handles itself in combat. Hopefully they fix the oxygen problem first. I look forward to seeing how the F-35 handles as well. I want it to prove all its neigh sayers wrong, that it's not an ill-performing, expensive, piece of junk. But from what I've read it does still seem to have a sizable list of bugs to work out.

Which one would win in a fight, or are they pretty evenly matched?

I personally think the F-22 is highly overrated. Still, nice photo.

I wonder what the photographer was in...

Also, it was funny seeing this under 'transportation'. I was like 'what?! Well... I guess they do that, too...'

F-22, first fighter jet to go supersonic without using the afterburners. I grew up an F-15 fanboy, so I'm pleased to see a fighter like the F-22 take its role in superiority. The F-22 is worthy in all ways and then some to succeed the F-15. No other jet fighter comes remotely close in worthiness for the F-15 to pass the torch.

Just to clear this up, the first fighter jet that was able to supercruise was the English Electric Lightning.

HerNever heard of it, could you link me to a site about it? You caught my interest in a piece of aviation history. I rarely here of a plane and not even know what it is, so I'm eager to learn about this.

My dad is a sucker for planes, considering he's a pilot, but he went out of his way to tell me what kind of engine it has, what it can do, ect. XD he showed me a video, and I must admit, this plane is pretty cool! Awesome things it can do! Great pic, too! :D

Great shot! The raptor can fly above mach 1 without showing any flames, pretty cool huh! Al thought I've heard the F35 is not a really good plane it is still looking cool. But Raptor all the way!
