    Looks like there's a "counter" to that Starscream F-15C awhile back.

    So Bumblebee's hiding out in Idaho? (MO is the tailcode for Mountain Home ID, not Missouri)

    It's awesome living in a town near an airbase. I love to watch the F-22's and F-35's do maneuvers.

    Float like a butterfly, sting like an F-15 Eagle.

    It was F-15s and F-22s for me when I was stationed at Tyndall AFB years ago, then F-16s at Osan AB, ROK. Nowadays, it's mostly MV-22 Ospreys and F-18s, with the occasional F-15, F-16, and F-22. Oddly, I haven't seen the F-35 Lightning II in person/action yet. Probably only a matter of time.

    Somewhere out there, someone finally remembered that bumblebees can fly.

    When Air Raid idolized Bumblebee too much.

    Yeah, Air Raid would have been a much more appropriate name to put on an Autobot F-15....

    The ultimate Decepticon cover.

    No one would suspect him with markings like that!

    We have Bumblebee as a Beetle, a steamtrain, a Camaro, a WWII car, a Jeep, what now, a jet?

    Actually I'd like that.

    Its the wrong alt. mode, sadly.

    He should be a F/A-18 Hornet.

    Always better to have the military identify with the good guys rather than the bad guys... Anyone in a position of authority who uses a Decepticon insignia in an official capacity always reminds me of this:
