I may post a video which shows some amazing flight acrobatics! It's almost as if it can turn on a dime...

Interesting they are calling it the Talon, we already have the T-38 Talon.

Also interesting its an F/A37, the trainer the T37, "Tweety Bird" of earlier times was an AT37 when it was converted to attack mode for use in Vietnam. In that mode the A37 was called "Dragonfly"
This is also the same type of aircraft, the T37 that the Canadian Air Force Demonstration team "The Snowbirds" fly.

Got to take a fam ride in a standard White version T-37. Pilot took me out to a training MOA told me I couldn't do anything he couldn't get us out of. It wasn't real fast (fast enough for me) but was a blast to fly! I was in heaven for about 30 minutes.
At the time I had been playing F-15 Strike Eagle and had some experience with R/C planes. On top of that I was an Avionics Instrument Repairman the first 4 years in AF and had been an Air Traffic Controller for about 12 years at the time so was very familiar with a/c flight characteristics.
He was quite impressed with some of the tactical manuevers I pulled off. In the game I liked to roll on one side, kick a little rudder to maintain altitude and pull hard on the elevator which turns you really fast for a shot on opposing a/c, told me I was the only guy he'd taken on a fam ride that did anything close to that.
