    Not blown Sid...I love to make predictions, in particular because they always prove true...

    My prediction for today is that you will emerge as THE balance point, I have never been wrong in my entire life so it should be interesting.

    That's a high honor I bestow upon you... ah, beat you to it...whether you like it or not...

    A real drastpickle some of you, I remember running to the porcellon bowel, bent, concerned with dread, too late, let what was descend floor upon and wreak, shower beckoned then mop. The minds brain depuzzles.

    Good heavens, I think I may have actually understood that!

    One asked why one has under-stood, comprehend was easy, identify was easy, knowing was easy, to not know allows one to feel stoodover not under unless as Lard Sid says = mig29 or to make it easy again, balanced, < do you see the sheepy in the hurt boil ?

    Damn, and now you've lost me again. And there I was, thinking I was making progress at learning Vernacular™.

    sure, why not, a MIG with paintballs as ammunition... ala ClintEastwood/Paul Hogan (no, not really Paul Hogan) Donald Sutherland in Kelly's Heroes...

    but, of course, Lord, that's part of the divination.

    Here's a coin-cidence for you,

    I spent a couple of years working on the avionic targeting systems for the F-16, The Greatest Multi-Role fighter jet in the world... but to be honest, I was never very proud of that despite having accomplished a 1st on fighter jets.

    I saw an amusing video earlier, about an F 16 pilot. He had seen an Su 27 pull a Pugachev Cobra and was asked what he would do if that happened to him in combat.
    His answer?

    I watched a video on that maneuver...Holy Shit! That is airworthiness. I'm not sure an F-16 is capable of that kind of aerodynamic control. One thing about the F-16 that I've seen is that it is very precise in standard maneuvers

    Here's an F-22, I chose to work on the F-16 because I was told that 'security' process would be stiffer for the F-22...they lied and I didn't...in the end it really sucked. I would think the F-35 is even more sophisticated, if they could ever get it off the ground.

    The F-16 does match the speed of the Mig-29 but I think that's suppose to be classified...

    I'm not sure who was first to come up with thrust vectoring ─ well, I suppose I could look it up on Wikipedia ─ but I think it was the Russians, and I think it was on the Sukhoi Su-27. Meanwhile, the F-22 also has it ─ I'm not sure about the F-35 ─ but an F-16 certainly doesn't have thrust vectoring yet, given that it was developed in the 1970s.

    That said, the F-16 wàs revolutionary for its time. It only has a single engine, but being very lightweight, it way outperformed an F-4 Phantom at take-off and maneuvering ─ the F-16's top speed was about 200 kph lower, I think ─ and it was also the first American jet with fly-by-wire controls.

    One of the jets I still find incredibly fascinating is the Hawker Harrier. It's only subsonic, but it is to my knowledge still the only jet in the world that can fly in reverse.

    It was the Brits with the Harrier in the sixties. That pegasus engine is mighty impressive, only now has it been surpassed by the F-35 VTOL version. Still, the US marine corps are still using their harriers after half a century...
