Just thought it was really neat how the music synced up with the jet maneuvering... and btw WOW at the turn at 1:38. He practically froze in space.

I think that was originally from an Omnimax movie. That's not even the best video (although the whole thing was unbelievable). The best part was later in the show when two A-10s strafe a surplus armored vehicle and they show the 30mm rounds striking in extreme slow motion. Incredible stuff!

Not sure... doesn't have the one shot that I really remember. Those are bombs...they used the Avenger 30mm cannon on the tanks.

It was created for IMAX theatres and I have the full DVD, its very good to see how Red Flag works. I was most impressed by central control where they have both teams on screen in three dimensional view.
While the overall view of Red Flag was impressive it was hollywood upped a bit. I suppose they are trying to attract new recruits with a little Top Gun so that's to be expected.
A thumbs up from me.
