    Default Now this guy has big BALLS!

    I did not write the following, copy and paste from an email.

    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. Unintentional?

    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, F-35 joint strike force fighter, after
    a problematic vertical take-off 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...

    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 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 deserves a Medal for saving a 70 Million Dollar Aircraft!!!!!!!!!!

    You know that's from from battlefield 2 right? You can even see the HUD in the lower corners.

    That is incredible. I wonder how far the software is programmed to deal with situations like this in keeping the aircraft off of the ground.. I.E. can it think to fire the forward thuster when vertical, or was that all the pilot.
    wow

    edit: aha that explains the smoothness.

    This reminds me of the other day where, for a moment, I believed the video I saw of Obama kicking a door in after quietly exiting a press conference was real. The reflective touchscreen on my laptop is to blame... yeah.
