From my friend in the Military:

F-35B...WOW!

THIS IS THE MARINE CORPS VERSION OF THE F-35, AND THEY CAN'T WAIT TO GET DELIVERY. THE 'A' MODEL GOES TO THE AIR FORCE, AND THE 'C' MODEL IS THE NAVY VERSION. I'VE GOT A HUNCH THEY WILL BE FLYING THESE BIRDS INTO THE LATE 2030's. NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT FOLLOW-ON AIRCRAFT.

Short video of an amazing plane from Lockheed Martin.

You did well except for one little thing. Please do not use all caps. It kinda means you are screaming at us. It is cool though.

One of the first basing locations for the Air Force version is supposed to be with the 158th Fighter Wing here in VT. The anti-military types are out of their minds about it. There is a full court press to try to stop the basing here.

There are a few of us trying to push back and bring the plane here.

Having lived for a while in Quechee, VT I can understand their opposition. It may interfere with the daily communing with the trees. NO doubt the strangest place I have ever lived.

One of my son’s friends has been flying one of these babies for over two years out in California for the Marines. He’s one of those helping to develop the weapons systems for the Corps needs.

Darn it, another Marine aircraft. The computer keeps cursing at you and it when you put it on auto pilot it dives in the mud to try to camouflage itself. For some reason, it also seems to always pick fights with Navy aircraft.

So much for American exceptionalism huh? Just goes to show barack what good old capitalist competition can achieve. I just hope he doesn`t try to sell it abroad.

SONOBUOY PING!

Click on pic for past Navair pings. Post or FReepmail me if you wish to be enlisted in or discharged from the Navair Pinglist. The only requirement for inclusion in the Navair Pinglist is an interest in Naval Aviation. This is a medium to low volume pinglist.

....also seems to always pick fights with Navy aircraft.

If you're going to truly be Big League, you'd best practice against the VERY best.

SMARTY is a she. It’s actually my brother’s nick name... I never had one.

AND, when I registered here, I didn’t know that the caps were going to appear permanently.

So there!!
