The plane in these pictures is air vehicle number 1, a prototype on board
the USS Washington for catapult fit checks.

Not yet made public, the F/A-37 is a Mach 3.5, super cruise stealth
fighter/bomber/interceptor with a 4000nm range. Top speed is classified,
some where in the Mach 4 plus range. Awesome!

Also, there is no phase interval for this plane. It has a 10,000 hour life
airframe and engines that require replacement only at failure or signs of
trouble.

The squadrons are to be out of Whidbey Island, 12 plane to a command.



these plaves are the shiznit ( dont ask where i got em )

    So, whatever happened to those cool jets that take off like helicopters? They are in that one movie with Arnold Swartzennager down in the Florida Keys, maybe you remember them filming it?

    From Globalsecurity.org
    This airplane has been making the rounds for several weeks now, with folks being a bit confused as to whether it is the real deal.

    On 18 June 2004 a scene for the upcoming Columbia Tri-Star movie "Stealth" was filmed on the flight deck aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). Lincoln was conducting local operations in preparation for an upcoming scheduled deployment after 10 months of dry docked Planned Incremental Availability (PIA). About 80 cast and crew members were aboard the Everett-based aircraft carrier to shoot scenes for the Columbia Pictures action film starring Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel and Sam Shepard, The $130 million film is expected to hit theaters in 2005.

    According to the back story, the F/A-37 "Talon" is a Mach 3.5, super cruise stealth fighter/bomber/interceptor with a 4000nm range. Top speed is somewhere in the Mach 4+ range. The movie is premised on an artificial-intelligence program designed to fly jet aircraft and reduce human casualties. Not surprisingly, one of the AI robo-pilots runs amok when Navy officials decide to use an unmanned version of the “Talon”. When the plane begins attacking friendly forces, Navy pilots are called in to save the planet from artificial intelligence.

    We would like to build a collection of other fake airplanes that have appeared in movies or on TV. If you can help us build this collection, please contact us with the information.
    Anyone here remember the YF-12A?
