Even in retirement, they're still so sexy in their own way
I love the F-14 too. I think Top Gun did a lot to popularize fighter jets.

CC117 is still pretty small compared to the antonov that landed in kelowna last fall, and that was just the small antonov

On the SU-37 and performing moves like the Cobra, perhaps someone knows the answer to this.

I remember reading (don't know where) that the SU-37 doing the Cobra had a specific amount of fuel on-board to allow it to perform the move (something to do with weight/distribution).

Don't know if it's fact or a rumor, but it would seem pretty useless to me to have a plane that could only perform its most aggressive manuevers if you had the right amount of gas in the tank.

I don't know if what you said is a fact or a rumor, but regardless, I just don't see how a Cobra maneuver would ever be used. Maybe it worked in the 60s but it certainly won't work on the more advanced fighters. If the opponent fighter is equipped with a HMD, and can actually see the SU-37 (assuming they can since the cobra requires a hella slow speed) the opponent pilot can just deliver an ASRAAM and finish the job...done deal!
