Welcome back to our channel for a feature on the US Air Force F-22 Raptor 5th-Generation stealth aircraft and what it takes for maintainers to keep this fighter airborne. You kind of gave away a secret about the F22 that only appears in pre-flight checks. it's subtle, buts it's key to maneuverability. I don't know what you mean by "full load". Yes, the Raptor can accelerate vertically, when it's "lightly loaded", fuel only maybe. But when carrying max allowed take off weight, no. The antonov was unfortunately destroyed by the russians at the beginning of the invasion. USA's old-style F-22, overhyped, overpriced, under-performing, pedestrian un-agile maneuverability, easy-to-track, too slow, too short-range, too low-flying, outdated, un-upgradeable, antiquated obsolete, woefully vulnerable, poorly armed, maintenance headache, lousy availability, barely "mission ready", flying coffin, or soon to be used to decorate aircraft boneyard gravesites. USA Military weapon systems in a nutshell.
