  • F-22 Brings Farnborough to a Halt
    Posted by Frank Jackman 3:42 PM on Jul 14, 2008

    Today's flight display by the F-22 Raptor brought normal activity here at Farnborough to a halt this afternoon. Along the chalet line, every head was turned skyward to watch the F-22's only appearance this week. Not since the A380 first flew at an airshow a couple of years ago has an aircraft's appearance been so early anticipated. I thought the display was great; the aircraft truly impressive. I got a chuckle out of one wag who said something to the effect of: It was nearly as good as the harrier, but not as loud.
