THE F-22 RAPTOR – – – WATCH IT DO THE UNIMAGINABLE!

Thanks to Tuan Tamvan and his YouTube series, we get the opportunity to watch the incredible F-22 Raptor do things heretofore unimaginable.  Prior to this fighter’s entry into the new 5th Generation class of air weapons, the faster the fighter, the less maneuverable it was.  But this new machine turned those old rules of combat expectations on their ears.  And it is not just fast, but it can cruise supersonically without the use of its afterburner!  It can fly straight up and then hang there as though a helicopter, then choose to slide backward and yet still controllably maneuver while in that “slide.”

But enough chatter, it’s time to see this all for yourself.

Don’t forget to keep your speakers turned on and to use this video’s hi-res imagery at your full-screen setting.  Tuan’s video is only about 11:00 minutes long.
