Video: flying an F-22 Raptor

0

The F-22 Raptor seems to defy physics, with the speed of a modern supersonic fighter but the maneuverability of a light airplane. This new video shows you the F-22 in action, from both inside and outside the cockpit. You’ll see the incredible vertical climb, the 9G turns, and the thrust vectoring nozzles. It’s quite a show.
