Makes easy to understand how F-22 won the dispute.

Hands down the best looking fighter aircraft ever built. Can you imagine a flight of these things escorting B-70 Mach 3 bombers? Huge mistake not building the B-70 and huge mistake not picking this over the F-22. This aircraft and the B-70 could be operating in the same skies today.

Sad to see this elegant thing so dilapidated.
