I pretty much fully agree with this, the Lightning has the edge for me, just because of how well it can do a high speed stall. Still I was also lucky enough to spend a week at RAF Coningsby in 1979 on annual camp as an ATC cadet. We got to do two days work experience, and I spent mine in one of the hangars changing the port side spoiler that the phantom uses instead of the more normal alerion. The spoiler moves upwards, while they use the flaps on the other side. This supposedly removes the secondary yaw effect of using ailerons for roll control. Rolling induces opposite yaw, and applying yaw induces opposite roll.

Not many 15 year olds get work experience working on a Mach 2 jet fighter.

I think the Luftwaffe and Turkish Air force still operate them. I know there will be one on the static display at IAT.
