I see in the description he says it's its debut appearance but I saw it at RIAT in 2010, and wasn't overly impressed.

 

Mind you it had rave reviews for the Friday and Saturday but the Sunday display was very tame.

Re: USAF F22 Raptor display at Fairford yesterday.

Reminds me of when we rented television sets - expensive, and needed somebody else to fix them.

Did I read somewhere that the RAF only had limited ability/access to these craft and that most if not all the maintenance had to be done by the US? 

It's the way of the world today I guess but still, it's a smart looking bit of kit that's for sure.


Don't limit the friends you haven't met with arguments you'll never have.
