If (ha!) I were to pilot one of these, I don't think that I would ever get over the feeling of "Wwwhhhheeeeeeeeee!".

I've been in the back seat for a augmented takeoff, and I can tell you five stages of after burner from a standing stop to "coming off the ground" in 800 feet is a surprisingly refreshing kick in the a..!!

The only thing better would have been in the driver's seat.

I joined the USAF and went through OTS in my dream to fly this incredible machine. Still dreaming. Incredible shots like this do such aircraft justice. Wow!

If i were to fly one of these, my neighbors would request that my ‘wings’ be taken away...and that i replace all their windows. Yup, i’d loose my wings!! Wicked capture!!
