Most Advanced Stealth Fastest B-2 B-1 SR-71 F-119 F-22 B-2 B-1 SR-71 F-119 F-22
Video shows and compares the worlds most advanced stealth aircraft including the B-2 Spirit, B-1 Lancer, F-22 Raptor, F-117 Nighthawk, and the worlds fastest aircraft the SR-71. Also shown are the XB-70, F-16 Fighting Falcon, P51 Mustang, F-18 Super Hornet, F-4U Corsair, F-104, and Air National Guard C-130 Hercules and many others. Some are shown in dangerous maneuvers, sometimes at the speed of sound. The maneuverability and flight characteristics of several jet fighters are compared. Bomb bay openings are shown for the Raptor. The B-2, stealth bomber is made by Northrop Grumman. This multi-role heavy bomber can deploy both nuclear and conventional weapons. Completely new demonstration of the F-22 Raptor, the world's most advanced fighter and most fearsome killing machine ever. Also shown are many additional advanced unique aircraft undergoing astounding maneuvers. The F22 will display the unique abilities of the world's only operational fifth-generation fighter aircraft. The Raptor is the world's first stealth air dominance fighter. It combines stealth, maneuverability, and an ability to fly long distances at supersonic speeds to maintain air superiority. For example, the F-22 dropped a GBU-39 bomb while traveling at supersonic speed. It is the newest most advanced military aircraft in the world with computerized controls and vectoring jet engines. In a totally new performance, in one minute the craft zooms from 70 to 700 mph. A high angle of attack and maneuverability never seen before will be demonstrated. Also shown are high-speed loops, low and high speed passes, tail slides, and paddle turns. It will appear that the craft is out of control in a flat spin. The Raptor's can travel at over Mach 2. As the world's most lethal aircraft, it is more advanced than other aircraft and the first next generation craft, with almost UFO-like capabilities. Although Russia may have the world's largest airplane (the Russian Antonov 225), the US has the fastest. The SR-71, Blackbird, has a top speed of Mach 3.5 -- more than 3 times the speed of sound. Its actual top speed may be classified, but much higher. It is 107 feet long with a maximum altitude of over 100,000 feet and has stealth capabilities. Some think a replacement, the Aurora, is entering service. The SR-71 is one of the first Stealth Aircraft, because of its design and coating. The SR-71 may still be the world's fastest airplane. Some may have been brought back into service. Another large airplane is the Airbus A380 superjumbo to Singapore Airlines ends the 747's astonishing 40-year reign as the world's largest jetliner. The A380 is larger than any plane most fliers will have ever see. The double-decker airplane can carry up 555 passengers and needs special gates to accommodate it. This F-117 Stealth Fighter (Nighthawk) can seen from different angles. Its exhaust is well hidden. Because the strength of a radar return is proportional to the edge configuration of an object, the plane has a boxy, aerodynamically unstable appearance. Its stealth technology also includes its surface coating. The F-22 is mostly invisible in the battlefield, has the fastest cruise speed of any airplane currently flying -MACH 1.5-1.75 depending on whom you ask-, can tbreak the sound barrier when flying straight up fully loaded, is extremely advanced in how it manages, shares, and integrates information and presents it to the pilot, and has amazing maneuvering capabilities. The Dayton Ohio Air show takes place near the National Museum of the United States Air Force near Wright-Patterson AFB, the birthplace of aviation. The Dayton Air Show features precision aerial maneuvers to display some of the world's most amazing aircraft. Some portions are so dangerous they have resulted in crashes - stunt pilot Jim LeRoy had a fatal crash July 28 2007. However, the same aerobatics procedures continue unchanged in this year's show. The planes are so close, spectators can smell the exhaust. Some of the demonstrations are at just below, or possibly at, supersonic speeds. At times, the sound seemed to come from some distance behind the planes. The huge B-52D Stratofortress was used for later bombing missions. Some of these planes may be what people think are the Aurora and some are sometimes mistaken for UFOs. The XB-70 was designed to deliver very high-yield nuclear weapons and carry them at supersonic speeds during the entire mission. A high speed, high-altitude capability was needed for this. It actually uses its own sonic boom to power its flight. Its design included a long fuselage and delta wing configuration, also used by the SR-71 and the Concorde. It was built of stainless steel, titanium, and used honeycomb panels. Includes a discussion of the Aurora.
