Based on the topic name, at least a little more talking about the show, not just Antonov's display, but ya lol

Anyways, the F-35's seem to have gotten much of the attention this year but I noticed the Raptor was pretty meh.

The F-35 is a very impressive aircraft in person, makes as much if not more noise than a Raptor and seeing it hovering is just something else. It really has grown on me.

This is exactly how I felt when I saw it for the first time. Pretty much despised it until I saw the Charlies up close and flying, then the Alpha. Still haven't seen it hover yet, but it feels like watching an A-10. It's ugly but it's unique.
