I was more impressed by the F-15 practically grazing the hillside.

Much too high! You shgould see how the locals from RAF Valley go through in their Hawks and/or Eurofighters!
About 50 feet up at 400+ knots :-)
We were there lastt month :-)

OPS -
The F22 is MUCH too expensive for that. I can't even imagine the hell the jocks would be in for flying it that low (even if that's where the good O2 is) after the chiefs pull their tapes...

Don,

Yes, considering that the production lines for the F-15/16/18 are still open. Break one of those, they can buy another.

Not so much with the F-22......

Misfit,
Trust me, I know. 10 years in Acft MX (all on the G'Damn Viper, as it happens), and I still love me some aerobatics. I'd love to see a video of what the F-22 is REALLY capable of; or, at least, what the jock can handle since the jet is obviously so much more intense. Big Blue and their cost over-runs aside, I'd still love to see a dedicated F-22 demo team if, for nothing else, to see the difference between the jet and the jock. Until then, I'll just keep listening to Dos Gringos and fixing broke ass jets.
