The F-35 Lightning II is coming out in a very interesting age: the age of technology. With high quality devices that are capable of capturing still pictures, videos, and even live pictures, every new thing regarding the aircraft is being captured for distribution and posterity. This is something that no other American aircraft ever had before, since the newest aircraft before the Lightning II is already close to 20-years-old.
Take this video as an example, it has it all! Stunning day and night catapult launchers and arrested landings of the F-35C carrier variant stealth strike fighter. As well featuring – courtesy of an America-class amphibious assault ship – the F-35B (STOVL) in short takeoff and vertical landing action; delivered via an unprecedented array of camera angles including from the flight deck, primary flight control, the bridge and from the air.
