I love these time lapse test pictures. I imagine they got a little nervous when the nose rocked up there in the middle of the fall. Separation tests are probably scarier than the departure/spin tests for the test pilots. It would really ruin your day if you bombed yourself.

This is why the pneumatic ejectors were designed to "forcefully" push the store away from the F-35.

IRC thd AVEL on the Raptor kicks out a JDAM at 30Gs. I would expect similar for the F-35.
