Default F-15D incentive flight

This summer I got the opportunity to have my incentive flight in an F-15D down at Gowen Field/KBOI Idaho. It was way sweet... I got all the pics up on my facebook....

F-35 is fun. Only single engine, but damn, its a great plane. I can't decide if the F-35 or the F-22 is my favorite.

That flight must have been fun.

He lobbied against production and because of this, senate voted to end production. Thanks, Obama.

Having said that, the F-22 requires 30 hours of maintenance for just one hour of flight, so I can see why this happened. The production costs were also kinda high for these. Really, production was ended to make room for the F-35 because it has better technology.

that and because it was a more versatile aircraft. It has production plans for all services instead of just the air force.
