"Yeah, let's just throw physics out the window," writes commenter @aly_allam.
"Most awesome aircraft in the sky," observes @gwx60.
"Absolutely amazing," says @stigaviation.
"The Raptor (F-22 for anyone who doesn’t know) is a beast with thrust vectoring," explains @0utiaw06. "I can’t wait until 2050 or 2035 when they might declassify the Raptor."
"Yeah, gravity doesn't apply to the Raptor," notes @gkoperczak.
"There's a reason this aircraft has been banned by Congress to be sold to any other country," remarks @zesphynx. "It is America's premier air superiority fighter."
"That jet is the most amazing thing I've ever seen in real life," praises @lupiarelatednonsense.
"I think he just moonwalked a jet," surmises @buttercorn12097.
"Don't mess with physics, you'll lose," proclaims @flim.flam.man. Unless you're an F-22."
Viewer of the video @zoey.zara.3 has a good way to summarize the astonishing demonstration. "Art in motion," the user says. "Beautiful."
