Warbirds – F-35B Lightning II

Time for another edition of Warbirds.  this time we have an exciting video from the sea trials aboard the USS Wasp (LHD-1) of the F35B Lightning II.  This beauty emerged from the Joint Strike Fighter program as the 5th generation multi-role fighter.  I am not normally a huge fan of jack-of-all trades aircraft, but it seems as if the detractors have been proven consistently wrong about this bird; in all but price at least.  Hopefully this made-in-America, next generation stealth fighter will perform as well as we all hope.

Her first flight was completed on December 15th, 2006.
