I can't see the video. I'm assuming the kill is through the gun? I SERIOUSLY doubt that they put targetting sensors on a T-38 that have any chance at all of picking up the F-22. The AF doesn't have enough of those to fully equip it's operational fighters, let alone it's trainers.

The F-22 pilot must have been asleep to let a T 38 get that close. I am calling fake on this.

Yeah, I just don't buy it. The Aussie's best aircraft couldn't even pick the F-22 up even when the pilots had them in visual range. No way in hell a T-38 is going to be able to.

The only way I see it if they were in flying in formation and the T38 pilot was a sneaky bastard. :D

Call whatever you want on it, it's a second kill of a F-22.

EA-18G got a F-22 kill in Feb. at Nellis AFB. (http://www.flightglobal.com/blogs/the-dewline/2009/02/growler-power-ea-18g-boasts-f-.html)

How many chances did it take to kill the F-22? I am sure many more F18s got their asses handed to them.


Same with the F15, 5 got whacked before it knew the 22 was there.

Like a poster said, was this camera footage made after the 22 spanked it? pretty tacky putting a F22 sticker on your plane for a kill made in a simulated combat setting. :rolleyes:
