Six Page PDF 'LightningConductor' by Frank Crebas from Aviation Photographer 1 2018 Magazine attached.
“A Royal Netherlands AF F-35 Lightning II undergoes low-level operational training in Death Valley to the north of Edwards AFB, California, with photographers and squadron crew members of 323 TES observing. Photography of aircraft training for low-level operations brings some of the most exhilarating moments of the pursuit, and illustrates well the passion that drives us to fly thousands of miles and wait hours on end for often just a few seconds of (awesome) action. Steve Comber/COAP” Aviation Photographer Magazine Issue 1 2018

Never has a jet looked so different, from so many different angles IMO..

Parked on the tarmac and looked at from the side, she's about as exciting as a 737 lol. From head on, it looks sleek and sinister. From below, it looks like a fine sculpture with her smooth, blended lines. From behind, it almost looks like a drone with a big honking engine.

Looks OK from the top too, although I really wish she had clipped wings like the Raptor. I do like her horizontal stabilizers, especially when she uses them to "bunt over" the top of a climb...
