Well,

Maybe when you get out of college, get a civilian engineering job for Lockheed, submit some TCTO's to the Air Force and fix all the damn problems the Raptor is having. Great theory, bad implentation so far. But like the rest of them, I am sure they will eventually get it ironed out.

Well, the biggest problem with the Raptor is that it costs too much ($100 million apiece, I think).

Anyways, the Raptors gonna get replaced by the cheaper, more versatile, less stealthier JSF. Raptors will only be used for elite missions, like the F117 or Blackbirds were. Just too damn expensive.

They'll probably be onto the next generation of fighter planes before I have enough experience to work on one...

I am from Serbia ( you know - where is Kosovo?) I saw F117 in action, but we manage to make on his body some extra holes but he couldn`t fly again. He crash. :roll:

Btw, the F117 was discovered with Soviet radar system from 1976!!!. It`s a shame for USAF.

Not only do they cost to much, but they have experienced many problems with cross galvanization, having to cut a pilot out of the cockpit, and also problems with the carbon fiber. To sum it all up, it was rushed. It's a great idea, but, they just made to many dumb mistakes. And, it's not only the inital expense that is high, but, the years and years of fixing the original mistakes will be expensive.

With my experience with LM, they have an attitude of, get in in the system, and then play fix the original problems later. We are having that problem with all of he AMP'ed C-5's. The new glass cockpit was rushed, and not tested long enough. Each C-5 has it's own set of "custom" problems. Edit: decided to remove some stuff I should not have posted on these forums....

The Raptor, if it stays in service, will be in service for quite some time. And, they will probably put you on something like that before they put you on a new design team. So, chances are, you will be working on one of the fighters. Are you planning on working on the military side of the avionics industry, or the civilian side?

I assume you are proud of this?

Edit: Well, I don't think they took into mind that someone would actually be using this old equipment. But, I guess they should have thought about the countries that can't afford to upgrade.

Edit 2: And, he did fly again, just not in that plane. I think, that was the first one shot down, if I am not mistaken. And, btw, the A/C was designed about the same time the radar was built. The first one seeing service in 82 I think, so, it should be expected, that eventually, someone will find a way to take on down. It was only a matter of time.

No, I am not proud! I am very dissatisfied because i like new tehnologies. Make a airplane invisible is great idea. If you ask me - i will give the Nobel price to man who invented that.

Name's Jo & I'm a 26 year-old MSc (computing science) student at UAlberta (Canada). My BSc degree is is Mechanical Engineering - I really like both mechanical devices and computers so I'm doing a degree in each.

I really liked my engineering job (downhole motor design) after I graduated 4 1/2 years ago and will be going back to do that after I finish my master's this summer. I also made software for engineering calculations at my old job and now I know the right process to making software and how to use databases properly & so forth.

Love Star Wars, computers (building, making programs...), Hockey - I'm a ball hockey goalie.

Just so you understand my attack on this, it sounded as if you were boasting, and you are speaking of people I work with. Not that Pilot, but others I work with, in the same branch, and see every day. So, no harm no foul. I just thought you were trying to make a mockery of it. Sorry for jumping to the defense.

Actually, F117's are stealthiest only when the radar hits them absolute head on. Otherwise, they can be seen.

No harm. I have a younger brother and he adore fighter-jets. Recently he cross the fence on the national airport just to see a comercial airliner on landing. Of course, the pilot report him to airport security :D  :D  :D  because he was just 10 METERS FROM THE RUNWAY!!!

If I were airport security, I'd let him stay where he was. The first blast of jetwash from a 747's engines should wisen him up.

December 16, 2006 11:12:59 PM

nuts, i was gonna post earlier thisafternoon before everything got so big. then i wouldn't be a tag-along. oh well, better late then never...?

i'm Isaiah, aka Zauh, aka Zazey aka Ike aka any number of things that are easier to spell/pronounce/whatever than Isaiah. i'm 16, a sophomore in highschool, and the member of various clubs and organizations including the Cross Country team, Soccer team, academic team, beta club, fbla, blah blah blah.

i love music, play guitar and bass and saxophone and violin, dl like a fiend, play in a band (and the school band), dabbled in graffiti as an outlet for my art, draw and read alot, play vid games, post on the forum, hang out with friends, you know, that kinda stuff.

i wanna be something medical when i grow up, b/c its helpful and entertaining. never a dull day, or a repetitive day, you know? well, i guess it depends on what you do, but you know.

i have and (probably) always loved computers, i used to mess around with our ancient Mac when i was like 7, and password-lock my parents out :lol:  good times. i've always wanted to build a sweet rig for the time, but never had the money, so my friends helped me scrounge some recycled parts (thank you friends, so much!). i try to animate and be creative on my computer so my parent's don't get pissed that i just "shoot people" all the time online. its workin out pretty well, i guess. but i do loves me some computers! i like to come here and listen to people who know exponentially more than myself, and try to help people when i can.

so now i've written way too much and nobody'll probably read it as i'm near the end, but there's my addition to the THG unmasking party.

I'm 33, married, father of two. Did a bachelor and master of engineering, and have spent 11 years in the software development industry as a contractor. Most recently doing complex Java applications for large (in this part of the world) corporates.

I spend a fair bit of time at toms at the moment while I wait for JBoss to restart every time I have to redeploy my app (takes about 2 mins on my E6600). Been coming off and on for 6 or so years.

I've been playing with computers since the venerable Sinclair ZX81 with 1kB of RAM (went to 16kB with a RAM Pack that used to cause the machine to re-boot if it was touched because of a loose connection). You probably won't have heard of one of these outside of the UK.

Outside of work, I spend time with my family, and I sleep. Every now and again I manage to get a game of DotA in, but that's about all. Oh, and we are in the throws of planning the re-building of our house (loosely called a renovation, but if we are removing the roof and most of the walls, I think re-build is a bit more accurate).
December 17, 2006 12:11:51 AM

That's pretty much a re-build MacDuff. I would almost argue that just demoing the whole thing would be easier but there's the whole part about it being your home and all lol.

I'm a 19yr old pursuing a Bachelors or even Masters as an Architechtural Designer. I work at Wal-Mart to pay for school, am my family's resident computer guru, and I enjoy the simple pleasures of hunting, fishing, and trap shooting (if anyone out there has wierder tastes than I let me know).

The thing that got me involved with computers was being contracted by my school do to work with 3 other people (my best friend and my co-department heads) on designing and reasearching the new workstations for the school. I was good with the software (i.e. how many people will learn this the fastest), my friend did hardware, and our department heads argued on our behalf for more money for the project (our budget was around $2500 for hardware and $15k for each PC for software)

That sums me up.

Yeah I know - it's note *quite* as bad as it sounds - the house is on a slope, and has 1.5 stories - so the bottom half of a story will remain intact. Also, there's some great native timber for the floor that we want to keep. The architect reckons that we'll save $NZ100,000 by not bulldozing (that's around $US70,000 at the current exchange rate), so I'd say it was worth it. Fortunately, we won't be living there while the "renovation" is going on.

Reminds me of something I once read. It goes something like:

This axe has been in my family for generations. Its head has been replaced 4 times and its handle 7 times.
December 17, 2006 12:55:52 AM

Got lost in the replies Sir.

I have fought at 240 before, I am blessed with being very strong for my weight (205) but with a slight shift in diet and more large muscle group workout I can add weight fairly easily and maintain quickness.

I am a striker with a little Jiu Jitsu background, not much but I can choke opponents out if I get a chance. I have only won by anything other than chokes and K.O./T.K.O./Referee stoppage once and that was an armbar that the kid rolled right into.
December 17, 2006 1:02:07 AM

goodluck in your next fight.
hope you win by trianglechoke. or the cro cop kick to the head.

when you are televised pm me and ill watch.
December 17, 2006 1:07:48 AM

Thanks! I may be fighting on "Showtime" if I win decisively or in a "fan friendly" manor. Friend of mine is going to be fighting so would be cool to take a trip to L.A. with him.

Triangle is probably my least skilled move behind ankle lock or wrist lock. I just never had the knack of rolling from guard and getting my legs up that high. I'd prefer to stand toe to toe with this guy, he has a weak chin and was a wrestler through high school. I predict he falls victim to an inside jab or knee when he drops to try and take my legs.
