Ah, it's an age old technique taught only by the veterens on servers. I dunno if I should tell you, you gutta be pretty awesome to do it!

But protip you can totally do this by: 1) getting a stock F-16 to full power and over 400 knots. 2) pushing DOWN hard on the stick, going into a nose dive. 3) pressing "T" while keeping the nose pushed down to add full "auto-trim", trimming the nose all the way down too. 4) push the ailerons about halfway to the left or right. 5) if you've done all this at a reasonable speed, you should start spiralling around your nose, rapidly accelerating.

A slightly easier method for raptoring would be the following:
Get the BNI pack's V-22 Osprey (Or the 171st equivalent if you have it)
Be airborne.
Start rolling one way and at the same time, kick the rudder out the opposite way (So if you're rolling left, rudder goes to the right and vice-versa)

You may crash a few times with this method, but it's a good way to raptor.

It is essentially exploiting a loophole in YS to gain an unfair speed advantage. By making certain maneuvers such as those mentioned above, the aircraft will begin accelerating at an increasing rate, allowing one to quickly reach hypersonic speeds (even if the max speed of the aircraft is a lot less than hypersonic).

It's an age old exploit that has never really been fixed over the years. That said, its use is generally frowned upon in combat scenarios; it's more applicable when you're with a bunch of bored friends wanting some laughs.

obviusly in the b-52 or b-747-400 not because how i see the raptorig requires maneuvers that only military planes can do

Any aircraft that has the required roll, pitch and thrust ratios should do it.

I've done this in the F-15, F-16, F/A-18, F-22...

on this case i need to be at high altitude because i sometimes try to make a loop with a 737 just at takeoff and... crash :lol:

but i try the same with an f-16 and after the loop the gears just touch the runway and i stop the plane
