Cool F22 Raptor Vid

This vid shows some of the maneuvers of the new F22, pretty cool slow speed stuff.

That was really cool.

The horizontal stabilators remind me of a scuba divers fins as they flap back and forth frantically trying to keep the aircraft stable at those slow speeds.

It was interesting how one stabilator looked full up, and the other looked full down during the flat spin maneuver at 1:41 in the video.


Although, I saw recently that StarScream would make short work of a formation of Raptors

I didn't know they could do 3D. A good look into the future.

Very cool video! I was thinking it flys just like a sea turtle swims. Of course a sea turtle can't break the speed of sound

Cool video! However, that video doesn't compare to seeing the F22 fly in person. What an awesome war machine!

Yeah we have a bunch of old guys at the field that can't seem to keep it from going over the flightline

Very cool vid.

sorry marian, i have to disagree. he "torqued" off (if a jet can do that) by like 20 degrees, and his entry and ext radii werent the same, so i give him a 7. but other than that it was ****** sweet!

I REALLY want to see a simulated guns only dogfight between this and the Su-37.

The flippy-floppy capabilities look almost the same !

gut there is a difference, the SUk is a huge jet and what we've seen of it is pushing it to it's limits. The F-22, however, we have only begun to see how incredible it is.(or so I've heard from those in the know)
