    Today the Typhoon

    Was at the Cosford show today - actually official business some guys from the UAE and other stuff - but stone me the Typhoon - seen it before of course but again the way that beast turns and climbs! The Tornadoes were great as well and the new Apache.

    Wow, must be really exciting to see how far we have progressed with killing people from the air.


    Harsh, sorry, Lindsay. But that is what they exist to do.

    And that is human nature. That is what we exist to do. The Typhoon is just a tool.
    Let me get this straight. You take a perfectly good CD and put it in a DVD player??!!

    Well I didn't mean a political debate guys. I've also been clear that conflict is a reality of life in may forms and the Typhoons are on 24hrs readiness to apprehend any potential threat to the UK mainland. But OK also there was the Lancaster and Spitfire and on that point I'll rest the case. Strat

    Well said Lindsay.

    Spitfire = Beautiful

    (also the P-51 Mustang)

    I think Russian fighter jet design is right at the bleeding edge:

    Seriously, the F-22 moves like no other plane I've ever seen. I've been to more than my share of air shows (nerd) and the only time I've been truly jaw-dropped was when I saw an F-22 doing it's practice run pre show day, most of it looked impossible compared to what I had been used to up until that point.

    It makes the Typhoon look obsolete.

    Yes the F22 is American, Bob- it is also about 10x the price of a Typhoon (although that all depends where the numbers come from as usual) so it should be pretty good.

    I was lucky enough to work on the Typhoon programme (I worked on the software they use to design it) and sat in an office about 100 yrds from the runway they used for flight tests. Some of the things it can do are stunning, and whilst not as fancy as the Su37/Mig29 cobra type manoeuvres (which look amazing but are a waste of space) it has the characteristics pilots like - too much power, more power, quick reactions... and more power. Mind you, it has to be said that dogfighting is pretty obsolete with medium range missiles these days - and when you can select a target by simply looking towards it (even over your shoulder or through the floor) and speaking to the computer, we've got as close to Firefox as we're gonna get I reckon.
