Major Paul "Max" Moga and the F-22 Raptor

***Check out the video here:

Major Paul "Max" Moga and the F-22 Raptor. This is a frame grabbed from the F-22 video. Major Moga did the entire narration for the video in one take and no pauses. His flight demonstration in the F-22 was a huge hit at the California Capital Airshow 2007. The vectored thrust can really alter the whole way you think about normal maneuvering.
The Air Combat Command demonstration pilot, Major "Max" Moga, was the first pilot to be selected for the F-22 Raptor Demonstration program. At airshows, "Max" puts the F-22 through a series of maneuvers that show off the F-22 Raptor's agile handling capabilities. The Raptor's two Pratt & Whitney F119-PW-100 turbofan engines are equipped with afterburners and two dimensional thrust vectoring nozzles. The two engines develop a total of 70,000 lbs. of thrust for the 40,000 lb. airframe, allowing incredible acceleration and vertical climb performance. The vectored thrust and large control surfaces can produce maneuvers that no conventional fighter jet can perform.
