    I have a question for real pilots:
    Is it possible that pilots moved so fast throttle stick, from idle to full throtle at once?

    Yes you certainly can up to max mil power at least, typically to go to afterburner (re-heat) the throttle must be moved over a gate to get to that detent, which is achieved through pulling the throttle handle up and pushing it over. I'm sure other aircraft do it differently but thats for most American aircraft. The Thrustmaster Warthog has this modeled pretty well and its the first production stick I've seen model it, too bad we don't need it in the Hawg.

    So it seems, all tho to my knowledge there are finger lifts in front of throttle which serve as stoppers at MIL. Could be that he was holding them up, so ya possible.

    But then again, I was never close to F15 and I can be summarily wrong.

    I know Typhoon and Tornado can be put in re-heat without lifts etc. All that stops it are a few throttle detents, so idle to max reheat slams can be done. Also the engine can be in re-heat before its running at 100%.
