Kinda funny to watch. Sort of a second golden age of aviation development. All those top notch 3rd generation fighters, 4th gens on the drawing boards, and generally everybody trying to put in practice something new. Sure, a lot of failed projects, but the successes were quite inspiring. Still a quite a balls-out attitude among (sort of) many, (sort of small) entities (yet) – as everybody seemed willing to take a calculated risk to plan, design and put in practice a new idea.
Almost kinda make you remember how you were feeling a long time ago when considering being a programmer.
