F-35B [276 Views]     
This video link is fresh (for the public).  It was made just six weeks ago in the Atlantic, just off Newport News ( Hampton Roads), Virginia .
These are the latest sea trials of the F-35B on the USS Wasp. They were  very successful, with 74 VL's and STO's in a three week period.

The media and the program critics had predicted that we would burn holes in the deck and wash sailors overboard.

Neither of which happened You will notice a sailor standing on the bow of the ship as the jet rotates.

That was an intentional part of the sea trials.
No catapult...    No hook....    It’s a new world out there!
The shape and scope of warfare – worldwide – just changed.
