(interesting in that all of those are marked as Commander's planes--none are typical line jets)

Also, a zillion pics at Airliners.net: http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.sear...umbnails=noinfo

(I'm sure at least a few people will find new wallpaper from that link)

*well, there's always the coral-pink one: http://www.airliners.net/photo/USA---Air/L...-22A/1182411/L/

Whoa many thanks man! Turns out my custom F-22 for my custom Slipstream figure turned out somewhat accurate with sticker placement! What kind of gray is used for the surface edges?

The color used on the edges is unknown, even ARC's resident Raptor pilot doesn't know AFAIK. 36375 is the the most common one I've seen listed, I'd probably go with something warmer. 36440? 36307?

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, an airline pilot was 1 step below an astronaut.... now, it's only 1 step above a bus driver. Though bus drivers aren't allowed to flip open the laptop for obvious reasons.

Could've fooled me, I swear those dual cockpit arrangement is the "in" thing this season... :lol::lol::lol:

Just to put things back on track:

That PAK-FAK pic EI put up, keeps reminding me of a term used to described another plane -- "flying prostitute", as there is no apparent visible means of support. :lol:. Problem is, I can't quite remember the original plane it referred to.. anyone?

Lockheed says the JSF is not delayed, it's merely experiencing "schedule growth".

In other news, it's not overweight either, it's just had some mass growth...

Super-Er Hornet:

http://www.aviationweek.com/aw/blogs/defen...bd-7371ec37016f

Summary/commentary:

JSF for USN delayed to 2016 at the earliest. Combined with overall US fighter gap due to few F-22s, USN highly considering buying 124 more Super Hornets, and possibly more for Australia too. New Super Hornet would have F-35esque cockpit, 20% more thrust, and maybe Meteor missiles.

I say we call it the Super DUPER Hornet. :p Before this is over, they're going to run out of letters. I say they go full circle and call it the F/A-17C Super Cobra... :lol:

The F-23 goes to sea.

Took 20 years, but a look at what the Northrop NATF would have looked like has finally been revealed. Other then the diamond wings, it otherwise looks like a totally different aircraft.

I think , i like the looks of the naval version "a" lot better than the non naval version.. :)^_^
