Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II RAF Hovering

OMG! What's all that detritus hanging out in the breeze? All those panels and actuators taking up volume which could have been used for more important stuff - fuel, weapons and avionics perhaps? How quickly can it transition to forward flight I wonder?

Hope that lift fan does better in service than Trent engines - another Rolls Royce product :dry: Losing the lift fan in an F35 is not as good as losing one Trent on an airliner when it comes to failure; the airliner should make it back safely.


Yes the Harrier was subsonic, but it did it in such an elegant manner.

Anyway, excellent footage of that... flying object.:cool:
