From the F-22 Demo Parameters:

Target -
Altitude 1,000'AGL
Power Setting Cruise to Mil
AoA 36

Limits -
Altitude 900'AGL
Power setting MIL
AoA 40

Description notes: performed into the wind.

Thing looks like it's on a rail in that shot. Rock solid.

Going by the number of air show accidents of other nations. I would say that the specs for the f-22 is flying well within its envelope.

Although technically, not at an air show, this is too good not to post. Make sure to turn your volume up to hear the thunderous, crackling roar of that F-135 engine. Wish I could wake up to the sound of this every morning... :P

One word: POWER!

Does anyone have data on its rate of climb? It looks to be a clean F-15 on the way up, if not faster. If I'm not mistaken, it even pulled off a vertical climb in military power (not sure of its weight/internal fuel). That was damn impressive.

Pierre Sprey, where are you? LOL...
