Re: Plenty of air forces out there...

This will is the state today. I have some doubts about any displays using frontline aircraft tomorrow.

Eurofighter - maneuverability is a joke

F35 - thrust is a joke. It simply cannot pull quite a few of the maneuvers everybody else can. Maneuverability most likely matches thrust (this is yet to be seen).

F22 - cost prohibitive and USA only

This is a natural side effect of the current tendencies in fighter development (emphasis on stealth and out-of-line-of-sight weapons). They are simply no longer fit for an aerobatic function - you are better off taking a trainer aircraft for the purpose.
