Indeed it is. IMO it's still the best fighter around. Though it's alot older than for example the F-117 I still like the F-22 alot more.
And I've seen the Red Arrows once, pretty nice looking show they had.
But Hawks? Come on, they should fly those air shows with something like the F-22.

Too bad they don't have F-22s here, I'd love to pilot one of those. I gues I'll just have to stick to the F-18s. (if I ever manage to get to the airforce, it's not easy in here)

I liek jets more then anything else. The sound they make, the speeds they can achieve. I mean, it combines all elements that are amazing, such as being able to actually achieve 0 Gs or up to 10 Gs. Not to mention you can move in 3 Dimensions. Which is just awesome. I've personally seen an F/A-18E Super Hornet break the sound barrier, and it was flying roughly 50 yards away form us. It came in EXTREMLY LOW, possibly about 10-20 yards off the ground, and then BOOM, it's truly an experience you can't describe unless you've seen it. Just amazing.

Man you're so lucky. I wish I could fly with a pilot in a jet. That would be amazing.

Anywho, does anyone else know of any other cool videos?

I was a bit dissapointed with that. What they could do was good, but the resoloution of the video was too low to really enjoy the look of it.
