  1. fantastic choice...

    As for something a bit more modern, perhaps a Tornado or Harrier

    ...or an X-29 if you could choose experimentals
     
  2. "The Su-34's most distinctive feature is the unusually large flight deck. Much of the design work went into crew comfort. The two crew members of the sit side by side in a large cabin, with the pilot-commander to the left and navigator/operator of weapons to the right in jettisonable NPP Zvezda K-36dm seats. The advantage of the side by side cockpit is that duplicate instruments are not required for each pilot, which improves efficiency and comfort. As long missions require comfort, it has pressurization that it allows to operate up to 10,000 meters without oxygen masks, which are available for emergencies and combat situations. The members of the crew can leave the seats and be in vertical position and relax. The space between the seats allows that they can lie down in the corridor, if necessary. A toilet and a simple kitchen are also provide for long range mission. Also, the ejector seats include a massage function."

    how many fighter out there have massage chairs?
     
  3. THAT, is brilliant
     
  4. why would absorbing the fuel be pointless? would it just evaporate otherwise?
     
  5. Realistically i would take a B-25 mitchel because my great uncle who was the first pilot in my family flew them in WWII and was shot down, Now im following in his footsteps and becoming a pilot so hes an inspiration to me.
    Because the T38/F5 the wings must be replaced EVERY 250 HOURS!!!
    The F104 costs $4,500 an hour to fly with 3,000 an hour just in FUEL (I know a few members of the US F104 flight team so these numbers are acurate)

    Unrealistically.... F-22 or A-10 any day of the week!
     
  6. The f105f thunderchief which was the heaviest attack plane built by usa in the late 50's (22tons), though it wasn't the best dog fighter, it was a hell of a sam and mig killer.
     
  7. the SR-71's fuel is such that you can litteraly drop a match into a bowl of it and it wont light. it has a flash point of 140 degF. it was actually used as coolant before consumed as fuel
     
  8. oh, do ecranoplanes count? caspian monster FTMFW
     
  9. hahaha and for the same reason too! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
     
  10. So I can't have a B2?

    Oh well, I'll just take an older model Harrier I suppose.
     
  11. This is my choice.
     
  12. The AMG Benz of jets. #$%#ing win.
     
  13. You can have the one that crashed.
     
  14. i knew that. but they still had to clean it up, no?
     
  15. Despite its high flash point, almost all aircraft fuels are fully volatile and will simply evaporate off in a matter of minutes. They clean them up so that they don't ignite in that time, however in the case of the Blackbird, it leaks so much fuel and the fuel has such a high flash point that it was likely unnecessary to clean it up without compromising safety.
     
  16. and it leaks fuel while sitting on the ground...
     
  17. the one in my av(stealth)
     
  18. Same
     
  19. I'd finish the PZL-230 Skorpion
     
  20. siphon it back up?
     
  21. I changed mine to the Su-34 now. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/confused.gif"></A>
     
  22. I'd buy a TU-160 Black Jack
     
  23. buy valium online how long does a valium pill last - valium 10mg buy online
