The air show is to sell aircraft... We don't really want to sell the aircraft to anyone. So then, why display it?

It would be nice to see what that sommbitch can do.
What I really want is to see the F-22 and the SU-30(35/37) go head to head and do a dance off!

Lockheed Martin, you can be sure, wants to sell that airplane. At least to the Japanese. The US Air Force potentially likes that because it keeps the production alive a little bit longer.

...But the Japanese do not need it, they have the F-2 (snicker)

But the Japanese really want the F22, the officialy said that, and pressured the US government to release the F-22 asap cause the really want to buy it. If the US doesnt sell the F22, Japan will buy the EF2000.

What would be the top 4 countries to sell the F-22 to?
mine...
4.Japan
3.Israel
2.UK
1.Australia

Turkey has pissed me off the past few days...

I want Israel to have it but, can they be trusted with it? Or will we then see it in Chinese markings?

The UK wouldn't buy it

I feel that Australia deserves it if they are willing to pay for it. They have been our best friend in this war and all in the past.

Japan should buy it too but we should build it for them...none of this Mitsubishi crap.

What would your list look like and why?

Stephen

Top 4? Hmmm. How many countries really NEED the F-22, is my question. And, yes, I include the US.

Stephen

Err ... by the way ... the Air Command Command has officially ruled out sending the F-22 demo team overseas this year. So, no F-22 in Paris.

With Russia playing old games and with the N. Korean and Chinese threat starting to loom once again... I feel that we should not be the only country with F-22s

The Eurotrashfighter ad the Ralphy fighters I do not think could hold their own against the modern fighters of the near future. I set both of them just barely up there with the F-15.

"The Air Command Command has officially ruled out sending the F-22 demo team overseas this year."

But maybe next year - Farnborough? As I live very close, that would be good :-)

Retail shelving
