Those F-35B's are very stealthy.

You can't make out a bloody one on that flight deck.

    Probably because that's not a US aircraft carrier, so here ya go.  I found one hiding in the hangar bay, and they brought it up for you...


    No good deed goes unpunished...

    There's a wing of them here at Eglin and they're too noisy to be stealthy. I thing they're actually louder than F-4's or 111's.

    No need.



    They've been very busy training.

    And a first, also.
    BAE Systems test pilot Peter Wilson makes history as he conducts the first ever shipborne rolling vertical landing (SRVL) on board HMS Queen Elizabeth.
      They will have a hook on it soon.

    "Stealth" makes me wonder. Advocates say stealth jets are virtually invisible - they have the radar signature of a bird, not an airplane. Right. A bird flying at 700 MPH. Naw, that's not an American fighter - it's just a really fast …  bird. Tweet-tweet! WHOOOOOSH goes the Russian  S-400 AA missile, aimed right for that … really fast … bird. …………….BOOM!

    Suposedly because the radar return is the size of a bird the computer software edits it out of the radar display.  Of course I suppose it would be possible to tell the computer to flag any "birds" doing in excess of 200 knts.
