So, who's interested in an Ultramodern Aviation Discussion page?

The Modern one ends in 2007, for some reason.

I'd take part, but I think few others here would. I see Winston in here any minute with a 'NO!'

Why not just delete the 2007 and change it to present like the others?

Vigilant, that's the 10-year rule about politics. The Ultramodern Discussion page is allowed to discuss politics as they impact military operations or geopolitical situation.

Other political discussion is not allowed.

I'd say "no" only because aviation technology hasn't really advanced all that much in the last 10 years to warrant its own dedicated board. Even 5th-generation aircraft like the F-22 and F-35 were conceived well before 2007 due to their long developmental cycles. Technological advances are more evolutionary than revolutionary, mainly in electronics and networking.

The only aircraft we can talk about on a new Ultramodern Aviation board are probably Chinese ones like the J-20 and FC-31. Incrementally improving on existing designs and redesignating them as something else (e.g. SU-27/30/33/34/35) shouldn't count.
