Sprey destroyed by Topgun instructor who flew F18 in combat, F16N, F22, F35 and was also a USMC Ground FAC.

Two Parts. Second One is quite enlightening.

After 5 seconds of listening to Sprey, I stop listening to what he was saying and started to count "you know" after 11 I lost interest on that as well. I wish they stop bringing Sprey on interview, his knowledge and opinions are meaningless and outdated. He never designed any aircraft, he helped write the requirement for the A-10 and in most account I have read, he had little to do with the requirements for the F-15 and F-16 set by Col Boyd and the "Fighter Mafia". Dr William M Curtis III was the Chief of Aero & Diirector of Engineering for the A-10. Harry Hillaker was chief designer for the F-16 AFAIK. I would have love to hear the Col. Berke interview without Sprey in it.

Oh, it's worth your time to listen to Col Berke blow him out of the water once and for all. If you enjoy watching people club baby seals to a gruesome death. Which euphemistically is what Sprey deserves.

Part II in particular is revealing.

For those who desire to hear Berke talk about the capabilities of the F35, here you go-

This is what the armchair fighter pilots will never get, including Sprey.
