Steve's Video Of The Day: F/A-22 Raptor "Stall"!

Stall recovery is easy, correct? The nose pitches down, then you reduce power, neutralize the controls, move the stick forward to break the stall, slowly raise the nose and add power as you return to altitude. Not quite as easy in the F/A-22 Raptor!
