I’ve tried this, but does anyone else get that extreme shaking at roughly 1300kts in the F22? The plane starts to vibrate and then actually glitch side to side, before completely losing control at roughly 1400kts.

@LewisB1. What your experiencing Lewis is called “Buffiting” it’s an indication that the airframe is about to leave its design envelope. Next step, you go ballistic, lose it, eventually brake up and hopefully punch out if your able. Or your can remember the numonic “PARE” and recover from your Stall. Max

So it’s not a bug then? That actually happens?

Not a Bug Lou. It’s acting like an airplane flown beyond it capability or because the Pilot is a peanut.

Your a good man Lou. Live, learn, fly by the book. Remember the are old pilots and bold pilots but there are very few old, bold Pilots. Do good work, my young friend. Max
