    Lightning II


    http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/060707/daf010.html?.v=61

    The name echoes those of two formidable fighters from the past: the World War II-era Lockheed P-38 Lightning and the mid-1950s Lightning supersonic jet, built by English Electric.

              But just l like planes before it like the Fighting Falcon (F-16) & Thunderbolt II (A-10), the pilots don't use these names. Not sure what they will call it, but I agree the Lightning II is a bad choice....

                Well Lightning would have been more appropriate for the sleek F22, buta Raptor devored the ones who came up with the idea !

                  I like the name. I'm not sure it fits the aircraft, but Lightning has always been a favorite fighter name of mine.
