Apologies for the focus problems after the first pass. I took this with my phone.

Nice video there playloud, thanks for sharing it! :thumb:
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.

Darn! I was in the area, but according to the website the F-35 would only do the heritage flight, so I decided to get an early start on my 5 hour drive back to Galveston instead of going to the airshow.

Yeah, they had the F-35 do a couple passes before the heritage flight, and then a couple after. It wasn't a full demo.

Hopefully, they'll start putting the power loop into a 360 deg pedal turn, back into the demos, along with square loops and minimum radius turns.

Yes power loop is my personal favorate. F35 is the firstt non tvc jet that performs this maneuver.

F-35 was designed with this maneuver in mind, because LM thinks this will make F-35 a "formidable foe":

There was probably a reason why someone wanted the F-16 and F/A-18 rolled into one...
Take an F-16, stir in A-7, dollop of F-117, gob of F-22, dash of F/A-18, sprinkle with AV-8B, stir well + bake. Whaddya get? F-35.

Combine that with continuous enemy tracking via EODAS & the ability to attack with a HOBS missile and the F-35 should be able to get a shot off LONG before it's nose "on the enemy".

This is a backwards, revisionist perspective on things. Nose authority and its role in the merge was appreciated long before the F-35 was even pitched.

Did somebody say that it wasn't?
