F-35 Take off

Read tle text before watching the video.


 
















 F-35 unintentional loop at takeoff on a carrier. This guy

clearly has brass and you know the sailors on the flight

deck had a cow when they saw this unfold in front of

them.  Intentional?  Hardly!

This is unbelievable!

F-35 unintentional loop at takeoff a real "check your

laundry" event.

A supremely well-trained US Navy pilot, ice running in

his veins instead of blood, fully regains control of his

70-million- dollar, F-35 joint strike force fighter, after a

problematic vertical takeoff attempt. Watch as the rear

vertical thruster fires to cause the problem.

There's nothing about this the pilot enjoys.  If he could

have ejected at 100' upside down and lived, he would

have.  Looks like the afterburner kicks in while still

vectored for vertical takeoff. Lockheed would call this

a "software malfunction" and do a little more "regressive

testing."  This is a good demonstration of power-to-

weight ratio of this aircraft! And talk about stability

control. Wow!

If he didn't come out of the loop wings-level, it probably

would have been bad news; maybe taking some of the

carrier with him! Add to this flying through your own

exhaust, which can lead to equipment malfunctions, as

in "flame out."  The F-35 is a single engine aircraft with

vertical takeoff/landing capability, but it has the

aerodynamics of a Steinway piano at zero airspeed.

This is the most unbelievable piece of flying you will

ever see in your life.  This guy's coolness saved a

70-million-dollar aircraft!  On the other hand, he might

not have had time to react to anything except just ride it.

  

I bet you'll watch it at least 2 times!
