should have done a shot from the front and looking back.  When he was passing over it I was expecting to see it.

I hate the Apple watch and when I get one and can figure it out I'll tell you what's wrong with it.  But I do know that It won't take care of the fact that I never carry my phone with me.  I haven't worn a watch for years, so why would I want to wander around listening to people ridiculing me.  Anything that small must be hopelessly difficult to operate.  I think I just keep that phone I bought eight years ago.  I takes pictures and has plenty of video games not to mention the cool reception.

There are several flaws in your presentation.  The most noticeable is the question of development and testing rather than which went into service first...a much more legitimate base for discussion.  The second is the fact that the US did not build the Concorde.  There were a number of designs that were proposed but the whole thing fell apart due to the fact that nobody in the US wanted them flying at supersonic speeds over land.  Some of the comparisons were of jets that I could see neither side taking any advantage at being first...they were hideous and really had no function.  Your shuttle never got beyond sub-orbital testing.  I could go on for hours but I have always found it amusing that both sides have continuously squabbled over this subject.  The most noticeable fact is that Russia has a number of their own military jets that are beautiful and perform well.  The US can say the same thing.  Therefore it seems to me that it is obvious they both have their ability to design great aircraft...copied or not.  I think the real discussion should be over the guts of the planes and not their appearance.  The power and the electronics are the most interesting aspect in my opinion.

Besides the sonic booms, the American SST was deemed to be too expensive to develop, manufacture, operate, and carried far too few passengers to be profitable. The other countries should have listened... I would have liked to see the XB-70 Valkyrie turned into a mach3 civilian SST. That would have been rad, obviously too expensive.

After the Soviet Union's inability to give a damn about the cost of warfare and Putin's current proud boasts I doubt that money has squat to do with it, so I can't help wondering if the attitude of this You-Tube video doesn't just show that Russia's chief aim is to look better than their hyper-aggressive counterparts and recognizes that these two sets of armed forces aren't just trying to look stronger more than be stronger in each others eyes.

25 miles away and working at Walt Disney World, we saw a thin column of smoke rising straight up high into the sky.  About an hour later, on lunch break, we saw the coverage on an update on the television.  The plane was making a circle to return to McCoy AFB but the crew realized the plane would crash.  They tried to bring in down in a lake but never made it.

The Russian Air Force has enough jets that I think you could find something to actually compare to the F-15.  If the US chose to resort to copying I am sure that they could find something better (I'm referring to the Russian Air Force) and a lot newer to copy from  Compared to any Air Force that exists today the Mig 25 looks its age.  (Like something out of a cheap 1935 movie).  We both passed that stage years ago.

Today, this type of investigation would be a total waste of valuable time, but back then they didn't have the enormous advantage of reading you-tube conversations.  This nonsensical article could have been avoided if they had been able to take all of their wasted time, and instead have read the input from all you geniuses.  There wasn't a rupture so their couldn't have been any leaking fuel.  God only knows what could have started a fire.  A year later it would have been obvious that Osama bin Laden had talked a few fanatics into performing this exercise in preparation for 9/11 by telling them that they would get sexier women in their afterlife for doing it.
