While it's nice to know what is going on - I hate these videos. Too much info to be obtained.
The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.

Back in the days of yore, if the military released this you could just about depend on the fact it was already obsolete and something else was being hidden.  But under Obama, I guess he thinks this is better than outright turning over the blue prints.

Yep - you only got vids when the next gen stuff was already being tested.

From that vid, simply off the top of my head as a fairly none tech - we have thrust, weight, size, radar signature, several of the control frequencies, a small amount of the actual control systems used, probable loadout and flight duration. You can make an estimate of what coating is used. Hell - you listen to the engines fire up, look at the geometry and you know the performance envelope.

Obama is an bleep. Not that that would be news to anyone here.

All true, but this way, if something goes wrong with the craft, he can blame it on George Bush - the USS George Bush!
