The f-22 is amazing. I think the b-2 or a-10 will anyways be my favorite, but the f-22 is near the top.

The stupidest thing about the 35 is it came out after the 22.
My favorite has always been the F-4 Phantom.
A smoky flying tank with those big intakes in the front that made it look so cool
They would come back full of holes, and be ready to go again next mission.

Isn’t that what they installed on Edina’s chastity belt?
Why does he need a chastity belt? Not like he is getting laid anyway, no one would go close enough to put it on him, what, did he put it on himself and throw the key away??

My uncle was an RAF squadron leader during WW2 and later a test pilot. He qualified the first UK F-86 Sabres and died in a mid-air collision caused by an ATC mistake in 1953 while flying a prototype Hawker Hunter. This has nothing to do with F-4s but I grew up loving jets and wanting to be a pilot as my dad really missed his dashing older brother and spoke about him often.

The A-10 is an incredible aircraft. It’s the AK-47 of planes.

There is one of those that flies out of the national guard airbase near me. In the summer golfing you can see them. What Incredible machines

I live near the former El Toro marine base.
The one where Will Smith was stationed until aliens blew it up.
I used to go to the Air Show every year, just ride my bike right in.
I think my biggest plane boner was one year standing in front of the Black Bird.
Honorable mention, the F-117 in person.
My Aunt's bf was a pilot in "Nam. He was telling me that if the Black Bird was heading from the East Coast to the West Coast at full burn, and if it started to turn when it hit the California border, that it would be out over the Pacific before it completed its turn.

I wrote this on the subject awhile back.

The A-10 is the most badass plane ever built, and the GAU-8 is in large part responsible. Fun facts about the A-10/GAU-8.

1. The gun is 16% of the weight of the plane, and they have to place a jack under the plane when servicing the gun because the cannon is so important to the balance of the plane, it would tip over.
2. The recoil of the cannon is more than the output of one of the plane's engines
3. It shoots 4200 rounds a minute, and 80% of the rounds will land in a 40 foot cone 4000 feet away. That means it can put over 3000 rounds in a 40 foot circle 3/4 of a mile away in a minute while flying.
4. A round compared to what we used to kill Nazis in WW2

The B-52 completed sixty years of continuous service with its original operator in 2015. After being upgraded between 2013 and 2015, the last airplanes are expected to serve into the 2050s.
