This is a 360 degree viewable video so move the control top left of your screen to move the view around. What is the gizmo at the bottom of the view of the cockpit which is on top of the panel? Arrow points to the unknown to me thingo.

Was working at home that day. Went outside with the binos and listened for them. Because of the flight path, and the way jet sound bounces around the neighborhood, I heard them but never did see them. :bang:

Capt. Wolfe struts her stuff. Pretty poor video quality as far as recordings go, but her Dojo Drift (1:12:13) gave me the chills all over again.

I'll see if I can get some ZOOM for the above drift (camera keeps aircraft in middle of the screen it seems) MEANwhile:

Also quite a bit of nice flippy floppy tail flapping during the low speed pass, I never get tired of admiring that.

That Dojo Drift is really impressive, as is the slow speed pass. Speaking of which, can the F-35 perform the latter with full internal fuel and weapons - or is it just an airshow thing?

From F-35 official airshow description the show was flown mostly with full internal fuel, and no less than 14500 lbs in the worst case.

Every manuever F-35s perform at airshows, can be performed with full internal loads.
