Gotta LAFF - reporters eh: "...Despite the drag chute problem, the Norwegian military is bullish on the F-35...." THANKS

Here is a nice video of RNoAF F-35s landing in Iceland, where one of them are using its drag chute on a landing, with plenty of cross wind.

Thanks for the tip however most of us here don't grok the language so finding this video is problematic - for me at least. Clues about the name - even in norsklander - would be helpful otherwise I see a page I don't grok which does not see all.

Eventually found the mp4 version of it and uploaded it to YouTube. Have a look now, without any Norwegian commentary or text.

In Scandinavian languages Iceland is spelled "island". That may be the magic trick.

I cottoned on to the second search for the video URLs/NAMES posted there above. Last video has ENgriSH subTiTles:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/j8l2ngj6dyor ... tracking=1

The engrish viddy is being uploaded so fings take forever otherwise - if at all - so the photo referenced will come later....

OOPS I see belatedly the YouTube video has appeared above so I'll stop my upload...

How it Works: The F-35A Drag Chute System
17 Feb 2021 LM PR

"Using a parachute to safely bring personnel, cargo or equipment to the ground is one thing. Using those same basic aerodynamic drag principles to bring a stealthy 5th Gen fighter jet to a jarring halt is another.

A team of engineers from Lockheed Martin and the U.S. and Norwegian government joined forces to develop the critical drag chute capability for the Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF) and now the Royal Danish Air Force, Royal Netherlands Air Force and The Belgian Air Component’s F-35As. The drag chute enables operators to safely and effectively land the aircraft on short, icy runways. Let’s take a closer look at the F-35A drag chute system.

How it works:
With the exception of serial numbers and other surface markings, one F-35A tends to look like the next F-35A. However, a small, aerodynamic pod housed on the upper surface between the canted vertical stabilizers distinguishes Norwegian, Danish, Dutch and Belgian F-35As from other F-35s. The system is designed as a wing pylon so that the pod can be installed and removed with minimal time and effort. The pod contains the drag chute system that rapidly decelerates the F-35s after landing on the country’s short, icy runways. The pod is specifically designed to minimize effect on radar cross section and ensure the aircraft maintains stealth characteristics while flying.

Akin to the conventional parachute, the F-35 drag chute system is a device used to slow the motion of the F-35A and provide control and stability for pilots. The chute creates aerodynamic drag also known as air resistance. The F-35A drag chute uses the force of wind pushing in the opposite direction of the motion of the aircraft to safely land on short, wet and icy runways.

To deploy the chute, the pilot flips a switch up on the upper left side of the instrument panel. The switch activates hydraulic actuators that open the pod to release a Kevlar parachute. Once the aircraft is slowed sufficiently, the pilot flips the same switch down to release the drag chute as the aircraft comes to a stop."

Why do they need this in the Netherlands and Belgium? Denmark I can understand...

Perhaps nowadays the interrabble has a complete DUTCH explanation however from info in this forum one may find tidbits using the string dutch+drag+chute (I forgot BRAKE is used also) one may find for example:

viewtopic.php?f=22&t=28910&p=314220&hilit=dutch+drag+chute#p314220
for:
http://www.sldinfo.com/f-35-and-collabo ... gian-case/
...Dragchute
From Washington, Rab now reaches out to the Norwegians, who accepted their first F-35s late last year and equip them with dragchutes in Fokker-produced housings. Former F-16 pilot Rab: “We also aim to have those installed on RNLAF aircraft. Our future jets will come with provisions for installing the housing on top of the aft fuselage, as well as the necessary switches in the cockpit. On the F-16, we made good use of the dragchute during emergency landings and that’s why it will most likely also be installed on our F-35s.”..." https://nettsteder.regjeringen.no/kampf ... er-kroner/ (scroll down to ENGLISH TRANSLATION)
