LM F-35 GM Weekly Update
13 Oct 2017 Jeff Babione

"F-35 Heading to Seoul Airshow
For the first time ever, the F-35A will appear at the Seoul Aerospace and Defense Exhibition (ADEX) Airshow at the Seoul International Airport in South Korea. Earlier this week, two F-35As from Hill AFB, Utah, took off and headed to South Korea where they will be on static display throughout the show beginning next week. Thousands of people are expected to attend the show and I have no doubt the F-35A will be a hit attraction for the event...."

Contradiction in this article below; however perhaps the aerial display will be tame flypasts etc...

ADEX: USAF sends message to Pyongyang at Seoul show
17 Oct 2017 Greg Waldron

"The US Air Force has made an impressive show of force at this year's Seoul ADEX defence show, bringing four stealth fighters and several other aircraft. The stars of the USAF contingent at the show are two Lockheed Martin F-22s and two Lockheed F-35As. All four aircraft appeared in the static display, with an F-22 also performing a high-g aerial display...."

Ah, I can't wait to have an f-35 close enough for me to see. The "Green Mountain Boys" are scheduled to get their first f-35's in 2019, and they are relatively close to where I'll probably be. Hopefully there will be an airshow in the future close enough for me to attend before then, though. If the plane's on static display I'll probably have to be escorted away after overloading the pilot with questions.... 8)

Here are some F-35 pics:

Up close the jet seems pretty small. Everything is wrapped around that giant engine. I can't wait until thrust upgrades to nearly 50K. :D

I once saw an F-104 with the engine pulled. Looked like a beer can wrapped around a J-79. :shock:

The footage from 1:45 onwards is perhaps some of the best demonstration of the power of the F135 IMO.

That's your best compilation to date, well done. I just love the way this little stubby fighter/bomber points, turns, climbs and accelerates ... all the same time 8). It's quickly becoming my airshow favourite ;). In fact it's got more in common with the P-51 Thunderbolt than with its P-38 Lightning namesake.
