Using a stealth nobody would ever know. Nothing on radar, plane just blew up. Gone to meet Mohammed.

Have any of these interceptions actually saved anyone or anything from a genuine terrorist? Or are they just to give the Air Force boys some practice? And get the Homeland Security folks some publicity? The gov't needs to come up with a foolproof way to get the information to pilots before their flights. How? I don't know - but where there's a will, there's a way. I know I'm getting forgetful as I get older, and sometimes don't check, but this kind stuff subjects me to a fine, possible jail time, and loss of ticket. I try to stay away from politicos whether or not there any restrictions, but I'm afraid I'll slip up someday . . .

From what I can tell, these were never actual security threats, no matter how much embellishment is added to the story. Is there a real story here or just self-promotion?

You do know the f-22's top speed is still classified.

I agree Tim
a 172 could out run a f22 right?
tim mitchell 3
the shock wave alone would probably scare the 172 into submission...lol

No. A Concorde would or ably be the only plane faster than a f22
The older model f4's were able to do Mach 2 until they re-engined them

I think a f-22 could have caught the concorde but it would take a while.... maybe not the SR-71
