You know in my eyes Typhoon looks so beautiful but I admire American Fighters specially F-16 which in my eyes is the most beautiful fighter jet in the world.
The F-16 is a sexy jet it reminds me of the modern day P-51 with its bubble canopy and the underbelly scoop jet intake.
wow Typhoon is now much stronger faster and better.
im sure it will destroy many F-22 now
It already would.
Not that the F-22 can fly without suffocating its pilot.
Love those beautiful aircraft, Typhoon, F-16, Spitfire etc, but also love that brute, the A-10.
Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder. Never more true.
I would have loved to fly the A-10. I am envious of those who did.
