Are referring to the recent 60 Mins show Phil? Both jets left the journalists inspired and in awe. However, I don't think we'll ever see an actual showdown between a Pig and Super Hornet: they're vastly different jets and capabilities. One is an old bomber and a queen of the skies, the other is a modern multi-role fighter. IMHO it's like the difference between a 57 Chev and a modern Honda Euro; that's a bit harsh but you get the idea. That said, a Pig would wipe its ars3 with a Super Hornet in a high speed dash, at any level :-)

Were these pics taken this afternoon? I thought I could hear some jets and I said to the missus they might be some hornets.

i didn't get to see the 60 mins show as i don't watch alot of tv play alot of xbox tho, if i want news i usually listen to the scanner so i know what is going on. as for your comparisons i see your point it still would have been good to see them maybe next time.

If I had the money and the space I'd love to buy on of the old pigs. I can remember every time I have seen them fly ov.er going back to when I was about 5
