F-35 Joint Strike Fighter News, Videos and pics Thread

since no real F-35 news are being released by the Pentagon/LM this summer, here's the poll:

How many US F-35s will get funded in FY2020?

my guess is 88 (ten more than requested)

and LOL don't quit on me!

I wonder whether the JSDF (and the ROK) will adopt the SRVL recovery for its F-35Bs as with the RN unlike the USMC?

An F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter has executed a first shipborne rolling vertical landing (SRVL) onto the Royal Navy (RN) aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth during first-of-class flying trials (FOCFT) off the east coast of the United States.

The milestone SRVL recovery was performed on 13 October by BAE Systems test pilot Peter 'Wizzer' Wilson.

Whereas a vertical landing is intended as the primary recovery mode for the F-35B on board the Queen Elizabeth-class (QEC) carriers, the size and arrangement of the QEC flight deck has opened up the opportunity to use SRVL as an alternative recovery manoeuvre. By exploiting the ability of the F-35B to use vectored thrust to maintain limited forward speed until after touchdown, an SRVL allows for a significant increase in 'bring- back' payload compared with a standard vertical landing, as well as reducing deck wear and extending engine life.

I sincerely doubt it? as the size of the Queen allows that to be part of their "routine", F-35B carriers are smaller around the world, remember the Queen was to have Cats and Traps for the C-model at one point in her life?

It was demonstrated on a US LHA so it is possible. The Queen Elisabeth class was designed with a variant for the French that had cats and traps this is true but it wouldn’t have been English.

wondering if DefenseNews changed the owner perhaps?

no more malarkey like 'sensor fusion', 'situational awareness', 'game changer', 'kill ratios', I ask why?

instead for example
When US Navy and Marine F-35 pilots most need performance, the aircraft becomes erratic

Mr. Brat, you may well be correct that there is insufficient deck length to conduct SRVL recovery onto the Izumo. I guess we shall see.

Yes Sir, SRVL is indeed a very useful technique for getting a loaded F-35B back on deck, but the larger the deck the easier it is, the smaller the deck, the smaller the bring back, and the higher the technical difficulty of getting it all back on!

The F-35 boys and a few girls here and there will be innovating as they roll out this amazing airplane, surprisingly the B model is a very fine airplane, and a piece of cake to fly when matched against the real man's airplane, the Harrier!

I doubt we have seen many? if any? chicks flying Harrier's, that takes "balls"! Bueller? Bueller? Ferris Bueller, any body have picture of a "chick on the stik" in a Harrier?

Valerie is a very sweet girl my friend, from St. Louis, and recently married, and loves cats?, but Valerie sweet heart, you ought to be ashamed of this title! another sweet, cute little "twitter feed". Jura my friend, don't you ever get tired my friend of posting the same old worn out, rehashed, reframed fairy tales??

There were only two instances of F-35's with horizontal stab erosion from the afterburner? they were anomalous, but we are gonna have to here about them until the Lord Returns??

as well I'm going to add that so many defense journo's on twitter, are just "tweeting back and forth" to each other, they are their own real audience?
