A minimum radius turn is the same whether it's an air show or combat, isn't it? Isn't an air show display meant to show an aircraft's basic capabilities?

On a practical note, what's the minimum level turn radius of a combat loaded F-16C at 45,000 ft?

I'm betting F-35A with internal everything kicks its obsolete a$$ into another dimension.

I would suggest use actual data, instead of airshow stopwatch timer

F-35 demo manual: "Entering the turn at 380 knots and the jet may still accelerate under 7.5G pull. Modulate thrust."

(fuel load: normally 18300 lbs full fuel, under the worst condition no less than 12000 lbs: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=57359
(feel free to compare it with E-M charts of other jets. A lightly loaded Su-27 (18920kg flying weight) sustains at 7.2G under the same condition)

'LAKELAND, Fla. Sun N' Fun Holiday 2020 Airshow.'

So "Stubby" or "Tubby" climbs like an Eagle...has high alpha like a Super Hornet...sustained turn approaching a Block 50...and sounds like a Raptor. Awesome. In the first video, the sound quality, in my humble opinion, is very good. Turning up the volume a little, you can hear just how loud the F-35A is, in full afterburner..
Have F110, Block 70, will travel
