    They really should, but there won't be a 9G "Dojo Drift", 7.5 will do it, but in many ways the C model is the prettiest of all the F-35's, I love lots of wing area!

    I secretly want to see the USMC do a demo team of F35B. Start off with a vertical right into the maneuvers with little roll.

    A $22 Billion upgrade in the works for the F-35 program including not previously announced features.

    It makes me wonder how are the Europeans going to achieve any substantive progress with its FCAS project when it is only funded with a few Billion dollars. In terms of development scope, the FCAS is significantly wider than the Block 4 upgrade where $22 Billion is planned. 5th gen programs are expensive.

    Just remember it’s only a rumor. The East coast Super hornet team had to cut it’s demo season short this year. And the 2020 season it’s that far away.

    Roger that, and that's def strange to cut a team in the middle of the demo season, pretty weird honestly, but I love the idea of an F-35C demo, flying around and rolling inverted on take-off with that "hooky thang" hanging out! LOL not every body has a "hooky thang", something purty special ain't it???
