    Is it just my eyes or does it look to anyone else like those vertical tails are moving in a way never-before seen?

    The current atmosphere on this board is reminiscent of when the J-20 first appeared five years ago.

    I believe we had seen this when 2001 first came out 5 years ago, on its taxi test runs.

    Sorry to offer criticism, Deino, but that yellow dress makes her look fat!

    I believe low-resolution versions of these have been before, but high-res version are now available.

    I think they probably test dedicated RCS mock ups on the poles, and they test both RCS mock ups and fully fitted out actual aircraft in anechoic chambers.

    Anechoic chambers do allow fighters to be raised in a "flight configuration," from what I understand.
