To me the one thing that stands out about the Raptor is how much excess power the thing has.

And if some of the comments are to be believed, the F-35 too (in subsonic realm). Granted, not as much as the 22 but as 2nd best and given the excess power aircraft like Typhoon have... mighty impressive.

All three are amazing performers in their own right.

Typhoon really is something. But if I have the $ I'm buying the F-35. Similar performance, better range, SA and VLO. Can't imagine paying the same or more $ for a non VLO jet...

This is by far the fastest pitching up/down performed by a fighter jet. Faster than the whole Flanker and Fulcrum family:

That's quite a bit more "aggressive" than the power loop performed at airshows I've been to. Is this something new, or is it part of an airshow routine OR maybe operational testing?
