Hey, wait a minute, I thought the Cold War was over!
Talk about Raptor bait.Yikes,I’d hate to be in the shoes of that Badger once Hostilities start.They wouldn’t have a chance.
haha... get a good look Russians cuz you ain’t going to see it coming
It is. A muslim is in the white hut. It si over and we do not need an air force anymore. The idiots watching TV and ball games are controlled by the 5 TV networks who control all the TV channels. They are ALL for Obama including Fox/Saudi owned news.
They may not see the Raptor, but they sure will see the radar returns from those big external tanks.
Very stealthy external fuel tanks on that Raptor.
Russia must be joking, their still flying “Bears.” Are they hiding what they really have?
I’ve always wanted to see a Russian Tu-95MS “Bear”, and an Iceberg (yes, the frozen thing).
A close flyby at supersonic should remove a wing from that Badger!
I noticed that, I assume they are coated with some kind of
anti radar coating but I would have thought someone would
have designed a stealth shape for them by now.
No more a joke than our still flying B-52s.
When I went in to the service it was F-106 Delta Darts doing the intercept missions. When I retired it was F-15 Eagles......
Hope the Raptor gave em a show.....:o)
Someone needs to design some stealth fuel tanks... Boeing should apply for a $1 billion grant even though overruns will cost another billion.
Enough noise to make you puke into your mask.
F-106... did they nickname them Lawn Darts?
And “da Bears” is still flyin’!
I did too. On the night of November 4, 2008 I heard the reporters on t.v. saying that the world would loves again since obama the uniter was elected.
Do you have a pinglist for these photos?
