RE: Military Fast Mover Near LGB This Morning?

Was there something unusual about the jet flying over? Odd sound? Very low level? Your thread gives the suggestion that something that, perhaps, is part of a black program flew over. Often, when people use the term "fast mover" they're alluding to a plane that's a lot faster than most jet aircraft.

RE: Stewart Selected As Preferred C-17 Base

Does anyone want to make a guess as to when all of the C-5As will be fully retired? Is there any likelihood the Air Force will be receiving even more new C-17s to replace the retired A model Galaxies?

RE: Chinese Stealth Fighter Emerges...

Is it likely the Chinese will get their new stealth fighter into squadron service before the Russians can field their new stealth fighter? What kind of production numbers are we talking about for each country? And, is it likely either country will export their stealth aircraft?

Maybe it's just me, but from the top it looks like a cross between the F-22 and the SR-71. Not a bad looking airplane though, regardless where the ideas for its development came from.

RE: KC-X Wait For 787/350 Possible?

If the numbers are high enough, I can see the possibility of a 787 tanker/transport being built for the Air Force, though I'm not sure how much redesign will be needed to make that a possibility. Rear third of the fuselage redesigned; new heavy duty cargo floor. Higher powered engines?
