The first one made me think it would be from a road exercise in Finland, where Gripens have visited. The rest... probably Sweden, after all.

The F-22 is coated with radar-absorbent materials in Polymer Matrix Composites. Max operating temperature is ~300C.
The Mach numbers, limited by skin temperature, are Mach 2.5 at 6 km altitude, up to Mach 2.8 at 11 km.

It cannot be much faster than the F-15 despite more thrust.

Very cool photo indeed 8) 8) 8)
I did not know the Martin Mars flying boats were still around. I thought they'd ended up in museums or scrapped.

The USN painted one was to end up at a museum (Pensacola) , IIRC Coulson donated it -- or something like that. But the Canadian Government of the time block the deal as they wanted it to remain in Canada.

Looks like a passable photoshop. The blades are in exactly the same position on all the aircraft
