    Holyshit! Did you see the taildrag maneuver at the end? Surely that is software limited in the flight controls. How the hell could he keep AOA that smooth without flightcontrol software limits that just allow the pilot to yank full aft stick and let the computer do the work. The thrust nozzles were inches from scraping. I've never seen that maneuver before from any aircraft. Anybody else? Is it just the F-15E that has this flight control capability?
