One last picture dump. I'm sorry to make you guys jealous

Here it is :twisted:

That's right folks, that's TWO F-22s on display. If you notice the double red ropes, there were two armed guards walking around the planes most of the time

Lastly, the amazing thrust vectoring exhaust nozzles

WOW!!! :shock: Awesome photos! F-22, F-15, F-16, etc... I reckon I'll have to post some photos of the Lightnings, Shackelton, C-47, Hind. Very cool pics though.
