Easterblogg: Conggratulations on the new blogg name Ggregg, and ggood luck. Now, how about explaining this:
[The F22 Raptor] is the first airplane able to "supercruise"-- sustain supersonic speed for long periods, rather than just a couple minutes.
You didn't really mean to say that, did you? Maybe you meant to say:
In the context of the F-22 Raptor, supercruise is defined as the ability to cruise at speeds of one and a half times the speed of sound or greater without the use of afterburner for extended periods in combat configuration.
Ever hear of the Concorde?
