    Exceeded by the X-15.. LOL.. But then it's probably capable of long flights and taking off from airfields...

    I loved the hunters especially when they accelerate into the sky at TAB...i can just remember the sound of their engine...unique
    I can also vividly remember when they were the first Singapore aerobatic display team... The Black Knights, performing at Pasir Panjang

    I think New Zealand still see Skyhawk and Tiger in service. Went to Sydney and on the way back, saw a couple of F18 Hornets. No Picture No Talk. Sorry, I was too stone from waking up frm the bus and could only gawk as the plane landed magnificently in the distance den I realised wad the ***** I was doing and failed to catch a decent shot.

    Wad else? How abt the MiG-27 anyone?

    F-14 from the movie TOP GUN
    Too bad, F-14 has reached it's service life. It was decom last April. No more Skull Sqn or Top Hatter or Grim reapers. Had the opportunity to be onboard USS Abraham Lincoln and Kitty Hawk...magnificant...up close with the Tomcats, Hornets, Viking etc

    I personally dont fancy Russian jets. As for MiG-27, it was design to challenge the US F-15 or the F-16's. But due to it's design, it was too heavy therefore lose out in endurance for aerial combat.

    Anywhere between 80 seconds to 180s of powered flight, the rest is glide time..

    But it's the fastest (Mach 6.7) and highest flying (~95Km), piloted winged aircraft..

    Needs to be launched off a B-52 bomber though..

    Fastest unmanned, winged aircraft is the X-43A at Mach 9.6.
    Also needs to be launched off a B-52.
