It looks like the operator had some fun. How Ironic would it be if it was a Russian behind the wheel of that?
I feel bad because all my favorite planes are being replaced with new ones. Granted these new ones are more advanced, and stuff. But they are also way more expensive. Not only that, but with the advent of faster and faster fighters, dog-fighting as it was invented just isn;t the same anymore. And that’s sad, because that’s what made fighter pilots so awesome, at least to me anyway.
Until we have an epic space war with some aliens (or ourselves) (no robots though!), I think the fighter pilot as we know it right now, is gone and done.
