Good lord. even if we assume the pilot was only 15,000ft, which I think is way too low, to have the spherical system detect a thermally insulated biologic that is underwater is crazy!

Now F-35 pilots must learn Submarinese :

Probably the whale was just near the surface - during a transit perhaps - this is a quote:
"...I’m getting this really fuzzy image of a boat down below me out in the Pacific’. And he goes: ‘Oh, wait. The boat jumped out of the water. It was a whale!’ He was looking at underneath the water with the system.”..."

WOW, simply WOW :shock:

Now it's time to equip the F-35 with Torpedoes as well and add it another role - ASW :mrgreen:

I'm joking of course (or maybe not :wink: ) but and continuing with joking:
- I'm sure that Giovanni de Briganti will come up with an article saying that this once again proves the failure of the F-35 since it shouldn't be detecting underwater whales :mrgreen: :roll:
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.
