Indeed, that looks F-22 level. ~5 seconds for a 180 turn (0:22 to 0:27m) is no joke even if airspeed was gone at the end of it. The F-35 has some very good distinctive performance aerodynamics of its own despite the constant desire of critics to claim it can't even match its predecessors.

I would not be confident in saying it was a 180 degree turn, angle of turn is an unknown. The angle of the nose relative to the flight path is another unknown. The velocity vector may have changed as little as 90-100 degrees in that five seconds. What impressed me was that it could bleed off all kinds of speed and still have the power and authority to roll wings level, pull nose up, steep climb, roll, pull inverted, roll level, and accelerate away.

I can't wait to see a "3F" demo for myself.

Great display of just how much power the F-35 has.
If you listen closely, you can almost hear Jeremy Clarkson going "POWERRR!!!" :D

Agreed. To me it seems like handbrake turn in rally car. When done right, it's likely a very nice capability to have. I don't think there are many fighters out there that could do that as well or at all.

That turn was unreal!

Never saw an F-16 do that. Hell, I've only ever seen the F-22 do that!!

Aparently Mr. Sprey even got the Turkey part (bird) wrong:

A 4th/4.5th gen fighter aircraft stands about as much chance against a F-35 as a guns-only Sabre has against a Viper.
