Some excellent close-ups of AA-1:

The jet has been at EAFB since early September where it has undergone arresting gear testing prior to ferrying to China Lake for live-fire testing.

I wish they had the bays open with AMRAAMs and JDAMs.

Nice video showing the beauty of the machine, and not how it's put together. Tridair fastners? NAS1581 screws that fill up with paint and stick? What does the wheel wells look like? AOA vanes? Pitot tubes or holes? I hope I get to take a closer look for my self soon.

The fit of AA-1 looks better than 4001 did when it was rolled out. I'll reserve judgment until the treated airplanes are delivered.
