Great shot spence! Wish I could have seen the F-22 demonstration. Was this one that had VTOL capability? Hope you didn't get too wet up there and you enjoyed the show.
Thanks Ben. I think it's just the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter that has the VTOL. I believe the F-35 costs half as much as the F-22, & I've heard they're halting production of the F-22 in favor of producing more F-35s. The F-22 demonstration this year wasn't nearly as impressive as the one 2 years ago, but still fun to see. I'm sad they're not continuing production. I think it's beautiful. Flying is my biggest dream (especially if I could be a fighter pilot).
Yeah, I've always been into aviation as well. I've been flying R/C airplanes for 24 years and love it. Used to go up flying with my Dad a lot when he had his license and he let me fly the Cessnas and Tomahawks a lot with him as a kid.
I missed the flight demo last round. I think I saw a portion of it from a couple of cities away.. and it seemed quite impressive but it's never the same as being there.
