~Sunflare~ posted this video on the 1TT facebook page and I thought that I would share with our own prop heads.  :)

Well, that shows how much I keep up with military aviation. I didn't even know the F-35 had VTOL capability.

Sunflare hasn't been invited here yet I don't think. Shelldrake, want to ping him?

It's just the Marine version that will have VTOL/VSTOL. That's the main reason it's been delayed even more than the Air Force & Navy versions. It is pretty damn awesome though and will add a lot of punch to those baby carriers the Marines operate.
