Video: F-35’s First Ever Air Show Appearance

Good morning, let’s start things off with this video of the F-35C carrier variant Joint Strike Fighter’s recent flyby at Joint Base Andrews’ air show last weekend. The flight marked the first-ever air show appearance by an F-35.

    I agree.

    I see them do that almost every day. That’s CF-02, the second carrier variant here at Pax.

    What a sled! It looks like a damn S-3 compared to that F-18, and we already knew the F-18 was a sled.

    I swear to god, when the F-35 flew by I thought it sounded like “boooondoggle”.

    And did anyone else seriously noticed that only like 3 people cheered and clapped in that video?! They were all probably Lockheed execs. LMAO

    Quit picking on the looks of f 119, just because it looks like the f-22 the guys at pratt (1998) thought the guppie boeing would win- the things gorgeous!
