Was at the Cosford show today - actually official business some guys from the UAE and other stuff - but stone me the Typhoon - seen it before of course but again the way that beast turns and climbs! The Tornadoes were great as well and the new Apache.

efficient kills is the goal, minimizing collateral damages..

Wow, must be really exciting to see how far we have progressed with killing people from the air.

Harsh, sorry, Lindsay. But that is what they exist to do.

And that is human nature. That is what we exist to do. The Typhoon is just a tool.

Just remember that 'collateral damage' is usually civilian death.......and remember how well America has done there in the past ffs. Course we need lovely instruments of Death.... The UK is under attack every minute of every day!

Well I didn't mean a political debate guys. I've also been clear that conflict is a reality of life in may forms and the Typhoons are on 24hrs readiness to apprehend any potential threat to the UK mainland. But OK also there was the Lancaster and Spitfire and on that point I'll rest the case. Strat

Well said Lindsay.

Spitfire = Beautiful

(also the P-51 Mustang)

I think Russian fighter jet design is right at the bleeding edge:

Your point other than the usual trolling for reaction?

Just wondered what your point was in stating the blatantly obvious.
