Nice! He's either popping a wheelie, or that's some fast film speed.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

The F-35 isn't the fighter I'd have designed or approved for use by the armed services, but the Pentagon and the past three Administrations have wanted the thing so I guess we're stuck with it.

Personally, I think the F-22 Raptor is much better and I'm still a big fan of the different variants of the F-15 and F-16, but I guess the F-35 serves its purpose. I just hope the thing doesn't ever have to have its ass handed to it by an Su-35 or a similar Eastern Bloc fighter because the thing's been overengineered and underarmed.

My guess: probably not, but we here in the West and in the U.S. in particular love to design planes that have 8 million of the world's most cutting edge and sensitive computer components in the cockpits and go into combat with just five missiles and/or guided bombs.

I will forever be a fan of the F/A-18 hornet.

Me too. The Navy has hundreds of those babies, including the latest and most powerful version: the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. I'd put the Super Hornet up against the best the Russians and Chinese can manufacture and I think it'd more than hold its own even if the other planes are faster or bigger.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

Boeing and the Navy are talking Super Duper Hornets, I guess Boeing is working on upgrades. I'm too lazy to find it in Aviation Weekly but there is an article that's a couple weeks old talking about it.

I've always thought Boeing's prototype for the JSF was the superior aircraft. Lockheed had the superior lobby.

Me too.

The classic F-18C is my favorite fighter ever. I think it looks better than the Super Hornet.

Nice guitar! Fender Strat?

Also, you should totally go widescreen. All the cool kids are doing it.
