Here are some guys you might want to watch for:

Gums: Former F-16 test pilot with experience flying other aircraft like the A-7
Johnwill: Worked on several projects in the aviation industry, I think he was also a pilot
35_AOA: Former F/A-18 pilot, lots of good stuff from him
Tailgate: Former Raptor pilot with experience flying F-15s
Fulcrumflyer: Former F-15, F-16 and Mig-29 Aggressor pilot. Lots of good stuff
SMSgtMac: Worked in the USAF, not sure where, but lots good stuff too.

and you've met sprstdlyscottsmn: Our resident aero engineer. If you wana know why the F-35 can turn so well with those small stuby wings and why Pierre Spray's wing loading argument is total bull, heres your guy.

A few corrections. 35_AOA is not former. He had flown every model of the Hornet and the NAWS F-16 aggressors. Also MD former F-117 pilot from an A-10 background, but I haven't seen him in a while. Also, That Engine Guy, or TEG for short, was a mechanic on the F100 series of motors.
