Pre-Order Expected Arrival - NOV 2022

The Lockheed F-35 is an advanced stealth fifth generation fighter combining speed and superb agility. There are three variants; F-35A, B and C. The F-35A CTOL (Conventional Take Off and Landing) and has four internal weapons stations in two weapons bays plus three optional external weapons stations. The F-35B STOVL (Short Take Off Vertical Landing) variant while the F-35C is a CV (Carrier Variant). The F-35 will replace the USAF A-10 and F-16, the F/A-18 for the USN and the F/A-18 and AV-8B Harrier for the USMC.

The F-35 has become a political football in Canada. In 2010 the Conservative Prime Minister announced the government would purchase 65 F-35s by 2020 to replace the CF-18. To sell this decision a wooden mock-up of the F-35 was made and displayed at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, Ottawa. In 2012 an Auditor General’s report stated the costs were very understated and the purchase was halted. In the 2015 election the Liberals promised to cancel the order and ever since the F-35 has been in limbo even in 2022.

READ THE DESCRIPTION BEFORE COMMENTING! 0:00 Crew chief salute 0:27 F-35A Engine Start Up 8:55 F-35A Taxi Out 9:35 Take off & Full Demo 16:46 Taxi Back 21:48 F-35A Engine Shut Down 22:50 Meet & Greet Friday September 17th, 2021. It was a very smoky afternoon, so some shots seem (In my opinion) over exposed. I also had to deal with a big crowd & had many passes more over head than usual which made it difficult for stability on some shots. Watch as Major Kristin "Beo" Wolfe performs the Air Combat Command F-35A Lightning II demonstration. Please note: This is an air show, NOT a real life scramble. There is NO reason to hurry. She also had to wait for other show performers to move off the taxi way, which is common at almost every air show. If the start up process is too long for you, I provided timestamps above so you can go exactly where you please. The whole point of this extended video is too get you behind the scenes and show you something you don't see in most videos.
