That is a cool pic, but I would think the car is quite the letdown after climbing out of a fighter jet.

These are the next two, that was a brand new lambo a few years back designed with those F-22 esque angles. Somehow they got to race and the car hung with the fighter until it went airborne.

Can't help it cool or an old big block with a wild cam just trip my trigger.... always have!

I was there at the Naval Air Test Center Patuxent River in the 70's when a funny car raced an F-14 off the land based catapult. The aircraft was extremely light loaded with fuel and the funny car had no traction on the rough runway so the F-14 was timed from launch to airbourne and the funny car went to a nearby dragstrip (Budd's Creek??) and timed over that distance, the F-14 won but know that it had the catapult assist.

During the acceptance flights of the F-22 from the factory (I was test coordinator) the Raptor had a chase F-16 so that ATC could see them on radar. The F-16 would take off, build speed and come back around, announce 10 seconds to the F-22's stationary hold position on the runway then the Raptor would go to burner (only one burner takeoff for LM and one for customer due to noise abatement) and the Raptor would outrun the chase from a dead start. 

We had to change areas where supersonic, non-afterburner, "supercruise"  flight was tested due to complaints from cattle ranchers.

Went fishing on Tuesday at the Historical Home of Edsel Ford, off Lake Sinclair, and this is what I caught in the pond!

 

I need to find out what kind of bait you use!

Easy, the best bait by far for anything even close to that species is this, the more the better.

I would think this engine is powerful considering the plane.

I remember that, it was in Hot Rod magazine, pics and article. I have been a HR Mag reader/subscriber for like 47 years. Gear head since I was a young teen.

A new one is in the works with the ramjet engines.

A new model, and it's unmaned at 3000K mph and hypersonic missles, that's alot to control with a joystick. But it's Darpa, what a suprise. :lol:

Yep, that little lady make BANK. $500 for 2 hours of posing. Her boyfriend carries her around. She used to be a lifeguard and she can actually swim underwater with that tail.  www.onceuponatidemermaid.com
