LF-22 Starling Description:

One moment you're on the runway slowly inching into position, wondering what all the fuss was about. The next, you're 200 feet in the air and rising, a shrieking human speck on the front end of a blazing rocket trail making straight for the stratosphere. Why are you doing this? How do you get down? What happens if you start crapping out heavy munitions at this speed? Honestly, we're hoping you tell us.
Please note: This aircraft is excluded from Pegasus Lifestyle Management and must be stored in a personal hangar.
