That's cool and all, but you just can't be the F22 Raptor.
It's the Shiznit!

I wondered why the Heli kept getting bigger....then it hit me!

I personally liked the SU-35 video better.

Interesting comparison between these two state of the art fighters 'doing their thing'.

While the SU-35's display seemed more graceful, I believe it was (to quote Woody talking about Buzz Lightyear) 'falling with style', whereas the F22 was being powered around it's manoeuvres.

Also you have to consider that the F22 manages these incredible aeronautical tricks with a stealthy airframe and without the forward canards that you can see working so hard on the SU-35, which then make the SU-35 shine like a beacon on the radar, whereas the F22 slips by un-noticed!

I don't want to start an East vs West battle, and I'm no aeronautic engineer, but I believe the engineering feats behind the F22 make it a far greater achievement than the SU-35 (although the SU and MIG fighters were doing the cobra years before any US fighters).

Just my two penneth, from the people that brought the world the Eurofighter, that has cost billions, is not stealthy, cannot cobra has no variable jet exhausts and is 5 years late and 10 years old technologically! Hence we are also going to buy some F22s......

Anyone got a number for Heli-widows, my wife wants to join!!

Yeah... I totally agree the F22 is the better machine by far, I just would have liked to see a better demonstration than climbing vertical a dozen times.

you don't really get the full experience of an F-22 doing a full vertical climb out unless you see it in person... the video makes it seem like it's going so slow, but in real life, that thing disappears into a dot in the sky in no time flat.
