    Beyond awesome! All my favorite planes!

    Excellent video… as I am not able to attend, THANK YOU very much for bringing this performance into my living room!
    The jet engine on the F-35 is really incredible – How does the sound dbA level compare to the F-22?
    Cheers from Seattle!

    I've also had the pleasure of attending the Chino Planes of Fame Air Show about 3 years ago. I lived in the houses across the street and it was awesome to watch the F-22 practice it's maneuvers a few days before the air show weekend. The Sabres were awesome as well. So cool to see an F-35 in the line up now!!

    I'm sorry, but WW2 aircraft just seem so much more, what's the word I'm looking for? Character… you see them fly and you just have to think about all they did.

  • July 10, 2017 at 4:54 pm

    Why not full canopy like the f16 ? that frame looks like it's right in front of the pilot… something like that in my view would drive me crazy.

  • July 10, 2017 at 5:35 pm

    When something is designed right, you only need to screw it down finger tight.

    I love these F 35s front view profile.

  • July 10, 2017 at 5:36 pm

    great video, btw

  • July 10, 2017 at 6:06 pm

    hope it can live up to the original liightning

    The spitfire makes this lazy mans jet look like a bitch, spitfire owns 1v1

  • July 10, 2017 at 7:11 pm

    Bolting down a fuselage panel just before flight must be amazing for maintaining a stealth profile.

  • July 10, 2017 at 7:25 pm

    This airframe is beautiful. Can't wait to see it in its prime in the following decade to come.

    the only reason i like the f-22 over the f-35 is the twin engines, whole flight safety training at work to work on there fuel controls is a pain in the butt

  • July 10, 2017 at 9:32 pm

    Such an awesome airplane!!

  • July 10, 2017 at 9:35 pm

    No external starter?

    For people randomly scrolling through the comments that play Battlefield 1, here's a tip. If you're flying a fighter and someone's on your tail that you can't shake, point your plane upwards at a 90 degree angle and pull back on the throttle to stall. It won't necessarily help you get on their tail, but it'll get them off yours.

  • July 10, 2017 at 10:43 pm

    Lol the f-35 trying not to stall out when it was in formation with the p-51's and '38

    Also before anyone says that I'm suggesting the f-35 can't keep up, you're an idiot

  • July 10, 2017 at 11:39 pm

    Impressive camera work. Can you say what camera and lens you used. Did you shoot in 4k?

    Зачем его разворачивают? Он же не разворачивается. Зачем его мучают? Вот вокруг своей оси охуенно крутится.

    What was satisfying with this exhibition, is the controllability and responsive precision. What was not impressive is the turning performance. Even if this video, thanks to the tele perspective, doesn't fully expose how much it fell and slowed during turns. But that was hardly unexpected. And one need to have two things in mind: Real air combat events the last decades have not been decided by an aerobatics contest. Rather by gaining an advantage through earlier and superior situation awareness, things like better radar and systems. And the F-35 throws everything including stealth and the kitchen sink into that game. The other thing is that deep in enemy country with a moderate weapon load, which the F-35 can carry internally, comparative performance will be much more favorable. And it's fast (and I'm obviously not talking about max speed, but rather about how it moves about). If you have a small wing – make lemonade. Fly it like the F-4 and Mirage III. Keep speed up and use the vertical for major direction changes.
    The F-35 will do good enough. And it's the only game in town. Literally. Nothing will touch it.

    The F-35 is not a fiasco. …But it remains that better planes could have been had. And sooner and cheaper. It "can't turn". If the systems are awesome, well they could have been equipping other aircraft . A multiservice design has yet again utterly failed to save any money, as well as failed performance goals. It should never have been attempted. But now we're here.

    This is very entertaining everyone on here is comparing stat sheets that are written on Wikipedia like they are comparing Fantasy football teams. There is one huge problem with doing that. The F-35 was not designed for the same mission the f-16 was. Period!!!!!. It was designed to work in an integrated battle field with other complimenting air craft That the current F-16 cannot do without jeopardizing the safety of the pilot and mission with cognitive overload. The F-16 pilot cannot even contemplate the freedom the f-35 pilot has. The f-16 is an amazing accomplishment for its time. But it can't do what the f-35 can. The 35's have full dimensional battlefield awareness for look and shoot capability. It doesn't need the power or or the maneuverability to kill its enemy. Even though it does have very close performance capabilities, it doesn't need them. It can kill you even if your chasing it, from beyond visual or in dog fight situation. So even with all the highest power and best turning capability in the world there are not many planes or pilots even capable of evading today's missiles without evasive countermeasures. So you all are both right but also so wrong.. if your in an f-16 and you merge with an f-35 you better put it in after burner and run cause your gonna die quick if you try to turn he'll already have you targeted and weapon released before you even make the turn. And he ain't even gonna turn and look he will release 2 or 3 missiles if he needs too after all that's why the 35's were designed to carry 30,000 more pounds than the 16's.. just some thought…

    Il est lourdaud, pas agile et il perd de sa vitesse après chaque manœuvre. Un piège pour le contribuable Américain. Bien loin de rivaliser avec ses illustres prédécesseurs…. F14, F15, F16. Un avenir difficile.

  • July 11, 2017 at 3:20 am

    Comparison videos between the F35 Mig35 and SU27 show that the F35 beats the crap out of both Russian jets in agility. Just wait when the F35 gets the block 3F upgrade that will give it 9g agility with a full combat load.

  • July 11, 2017 at 4:02 am

    That sexy open weapons bay pass at 8:20, and the roll and jink right after that was just epic!!

  • July 11, 2017 at 4:25 am

    And the salty Russian fanboy tears have been delicious 🙂

  • July 11, 2017 at 4:26 am

    Norks have not a clue…

  • July 11, 2017 at 5:18 am

    Well that was just too much excitement for me…

  • July 11, 2017 at 5:37 am

    Massive body and small wings. No, it will not stand against mig 21 or F16 on non stealthy dog fight.

  • July 11, 2017 at 6:15 am

    I haven't been impressed by this plane yet, nor do I like how much this program has cost the country. But if it can demonstrate what it can do in full at some point, My opinion could change.

  • July 11, 2017 at 7:12 am

    Russias philosophy of designing fighters to fight close in WW2 style battles is going to get them killed most of the time. In todays and future environment the fighter that will minimize detection via stealth and with the ability to accurately target and destroy from long distances through advanced avionics and situational awareness built in like the F35 is going to defeat the enemy almost every time. Russias best fighter the SU35 is large and very detectable ( no stealth attributes) and has inferior 70s technology PESA radar that though powerful does not have the capability to target stealth aircraft like the F35 and F22 and would enter the fight virtually blind. The F35 would literally run circles around the SU35 because the SU35 pilot would have no clue as to the whereabouts of the F35 while the F35 pilot would have a constant clear picture of the SU35s position. The ony time the SU35 pilot would suspect that an F35 is lurking around is when he sees his wingman blow up.

    PIG FLY!!400 milliards de dollars pour un cochon volant?le monde entier se marre!!!il est lent,horriblement cher et le plus drôle,il ne peut pas voler près d'un orage!!!funny or a joke???capacité d'emport en soute?ridicule,et là il vole avec les réservoirs à moitié vide!on attendait un super décollage à la verticale,pas de chance il y avait une mauvaise météo!d'après le directeur de vol et de démonstration du Bourget,bref encore une fois depuis des années cet avion est très fragile,et très peureux,pour un chasseur c'est trop drôle!!

  • July 11, 2017 at 7:49 am

    Just pathetic, nothing more to say

  • July 11, 2017 at 8:33 am

    Donde esta la invisibilidad?

  • July 11, 2017 at 8:43 am

    Una heladera volante !!!!

  • July 11, 2017 at 8:52 am

    pas possible… c'est un veau ou quoi??!?

  • July 11, 2017 at 9:18 am

    With more computational power in 21st century, the idea of having a smaller plane with small wings but the body producing most of the lift is realized. Observing the video and been read some few comments I suspect the restricted envelope of 7Gs doesn't do justice to this jet. Why not go to max 9G like most plane in air shows do, like eurofighters, F16s, flankers and rafale's do. To me personally it seems to be a bad impression.

  • July 11, 2017 at 10:17 am

    the f35 is a terrible airplane its wings are to small to be a dogfighter you need big wings to maneuver there is a good fifth estate documentary called the runaway fighter that does a good job telling the story of how the f35 is more political than practical and any good pilot knows one plane cant do all the jobs. the only advantage this thing has is it supposedly cant be detected that's the selling point that makes people forget all the other important characteristics that makes a good dogfighter. also since its suppose o be invisible it cant carry drop tanks or a good bomb load I mean two bombs is a joke and the range is also going to be affected.
