UFO or Raptor?

UFO or Raptor?

PostBy: Matthaus On: Wed Sep 26, 2007 3:03 pm

Current technology application in military aviation lends itself to sighting some unidentified flying objects just by their apparent impossible movement through the sky. The flight demonstration of the F/A-22 Raptor will have you thinking "is that thing going backwards, or sideways?".

As you watch his Mach 2 airplane suspend motionless in air and do tail slides, be aware of the truly amazing performance of the engines and intakes..

The video is about 5 minutes long but the last 30-40 seconds are priceless. :shocked!:

Thanks Paul, my mastery of technology is so wonderful I can't even manage to paste a link that works. :P

Only difference was the hyphen at the beginning. They probably changed it after you posted the link. :)

I know speed is very hard to guage without something to refer to other than clouds, but it is pretty amazing that that aircraft can maintain controled flight at virtually zero airspeed over the lifting and control surfaces.

Any idea what the plane weighs during the demonstration??

I cannot see any vectored exhaust like a Harrier has, is hot air directed over the wing or control surfaces to aid in lift or control?? I can see the computers 'working' the control surfaces, and I'm assuming the thrust as well. but non-the-less:

VERY amazing... But,,, can it carry 150 customers??? :o :lol: :)

Greg,

I seen this bad boy fly at an airshow last year and yes, it does have vector thrust. But is doesn't have a separate nozzle on the bottom like the Harrier, Just the rear exhaust housing moves . It is a marvel of technology for sure.
No, it might not be able to carry 150 customers but it can kill 150 "customers" in a big hurry :twisted:

every state in the union has a piece of this jet. the parts come from all over to be put together. it's really a nation project. amazing jet though. you should see how fast the doors open , shot a missle and close. this jet is about as fast as man can handle with the G's. the next generation will be unmaned. has to be the altament rush to be in the seat of this baby. :)
