    Fighter jet pilots need to be in good shape to withstand G-forces on their bodies. How do you cope with similar situations (waterslides, roller coasters)?

    As everyone has said, almost every graphic shows the wrong planes. Also, the Bell X-1 isn’t a jet. It’s a rocket plane.

    Gotta say, considering that the military is usually like 10 to 20 years ahead of what we know, if the f35 is the most advanced NOW, then the US military prob has stuff that we cant even fathom.

    I wonder where's this channel from.. Not.
    50 insane American Jets facts*, more like.

    You could've at least mention that one of those stealth bomber plane got shot down by a traditionnal DCA in some slav country (forgot which, tbh) by visual acquisition.
    The slavs didn't knew it was supposed to be stealthy, I think they didn't had radars or something, so they just saw a plane, and shot it down.

    Buuuut that would make muhrica look bad :c

    The oxygen issue is not on the F35, that is a problem on the F22. Also, the F35 is another reason why you don’t build a one all aircraft. The brass wanted to build one airplane to serve the USAF, USN, and USMC. However, all three have different requirements. This the development cost are astronomical. And shows this is not the way to build fighter jets.

    Infographics needs better graphics.
    You guys also need to know the differences between the looks and silhouettes of different aircraft, tanks, ships, etc.
    Is it really that difficult? It's kinda amateurish and incompetent to see an F-18 with F-15 written on the tail, or an F-35 image that is supposed to be representing an F-4. Are you guys even trying?

    anyone smart enough would notice the wrong planes models...
    F-4 is F-35
    F-22 is Su-57
    Su-35 is F-16
    F-15 is an F-18 with something written on it
    MiG-23 is probably F-16 too
    and the Su-57 program was cancelled, never coming back
