That cant be right, the F22 Raptor uses thrust vectoring allowing a tighter turning radius.



Sure in dog-fighting for example, but not for speed higher than 300mph.


 

Another problem is that a greater IR signature is created.

In my opinion, the F-22 is a decades-old example of primitive aerospace technology that needs a good replacement fast. All that funding for an aircraft with multiple flaws including a skin that has poor resistance to the elements and emits a hight IR signiture even at low thrust. The F-35 at least has a better skin which leaves less glow in FLIR perspective, even at higher speed.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes the F-35 better. :D

No, he left on his own. Haven't seen him log in since the past "troubles".

F-22 Raptor Demo, flown by Major Dave "Zeke" Skalicky, at the 2009 Joint Services Open House at Andrews AFB, MD. The demo was the "low profile" due to the weather, but the vapor was quite impressive!

From 60 Minutes "Is the Air Force's F-22 fighter jet making pilots sick?"

Published on May 6, 2012

Two military pilots won't fly the F-22 Raptor, the Air Force's most sophisticated fighter plane, because they say a lack of oxygen during flight is causing disorientation and worse. Lesley Stahl reports.
