  8. "F-35B Transonic Shock

    Flight test of the F-35B with visible transonic flow, April 19, 2012 at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md."

  9. BURNING LEGENDS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. I am going to say again since you troll this plane. It does things that other planes today cant do! Besides your constantly talking about cost. Cost will go down in time. God willing if I get to fly in the USMC I would want to fly this airplane in the event that a real war breaks out

  11. Mmmmmm. Pretty picture plane, yes? Transonic flow makes for a great effect, almost sci-fi, which fits perfectly with the F-35's image. These 5th Gens look awesome.

    Flew in a 16 in'05 the pilot said he wanted the F-35 more than the 22 as his dream ride. I think they should make a dmodel a twin engine/seat version and throw a gau-8 avenger in that sucker…make that a howitzer and call it a day. Hey for a trillion dollars We can build anything!

  13. Pitty the plane is only a Mach 1 fighter. Wish they make them faster.

  14. I haven't seen a pic with the extra attachment on the nose before. That just for the flight testing or is it there for the 'retail' version too?

  15. New Article in "Foreign Policy Magazine " just released "The Jet That Ate the Pentagon "
    It pretty well sums up this monstrosity of a Failed & Flawed Program.

  16. The best afterburner pics I always saw are the Blackbirds on takeoff in darkness. Seeing the exhaust diamonds were sweet and an unexplained phenomena. Also it's rare to find such pics as well. This one in the midst of transonic is top 3 on my list while that other one of the F18 is #2.

    Good shot all the same.

  17. mmmmm I get a feeling after all the hoo haa about costs, capabilities service dates etc that this may well be a good thing. Because its so new and there are not many everybody is thinking bad things, remember this is not like building the family car so as soon as they start coming off the assembly line in some sort of numbers people will back off. It would help if Brits worked out what hey wanted the "b" or "c" but thats a whole differant arguement

  18. bizarre mods on this sight …very inconsitent. i quess they delete the posts that offer a different view than their own opinions,

  19. Will all due respect, the proper term for this would be "in full augmentor," not "afterburner."

  20. Money can do anything I just love to see that f35 fly by its awsome! The Dutch f-35 is test flying also.We must stay on top in every bit of tech in every service..

  21. I hope this jets are worth the 1.51 trillion dollars the program i costin us, but they sure do look badass!

    Get some…

  23. Looks like Canada is going to have a complete restart and a competition for it's new Fighter Aircraft , not automatically sign on to the F-35 JSF . With a lot of support for both the Super Hornet and the Gripen NG. Here is a link to yesterdays main headlines,

  24. looks like the paint vaporizing off the bodywork

    The Single Engine F-35 Lightning,Is Not Worth The Price.

  26. Turkey will buy 100 F-35A :))

  27. do you know guys that Japan has chosen the US-made F-35 stealth jet as its next-generation mainstay fighter in a multi-billion dollar deal? http://airsoc.com/articles/view/id/4ee7094ac6f8fa
