  • Aviation Week F-22 Farnborough Video
    Posted by Sean Meade 11:20 AM on Jul 18, 2008

    One of the best parts of my visit here to Farnborough has been the F-22 demonstration flight on Monday, the first time the F-22 has flown in such a venue in Europe.

    There was commentary over the speakers in the grand stand, but I was watching from the Aviation Week/Show News chalet, so it was pretty hard to hear it.

    We've got the commentary hooked up, though, in our best AvWeek video yet. Sure, we've got the maneuvers, but you can see those on YouTube. More importantly, we've got commentary by Alan Norman, Chief Experimental Test Pilot for Lockheed Martin.

    Check it out!

    Postscript: Of course the F-22 is designed to never get in a dog fight and to kill from far away. But the maneuvers and commentary are still really cool ;-)

    Update: I didn't think Sean would mind if I barged in here to add that we now have an equally cool Eurofighter flight video. You are hereby officially authorized to check that one out too. --Christopher Fotos, web managing editor
