F-35B tester VTOL-egenskaper

This video link is fresh (for the public).  It was made just six weeks ago in the Atlantic, just off Newport News ( Hampton Roads), Virginia .

These are the latest sea trials of the F-35B on the USS Wasp. They were  very successful, with 74 VL’s and STO’s in a three week period.

(Actually was 10/2011)

The media and the program critics had predicted that we would burn holes in the deck and wash sailors overboard.

Neither of which happened. You will notice a sailor standing on the bow of the ship as the jet rotates.

That was an intentional part of the sea trials.

No catapult…    No hook….    It’s a new world out there!

The shape and scope of warfare «worldwide»  just changed.
