F-35B Lightning II Vertical Landing and Takeoff Aboard the USS Wasp

  • Published on May 22, 2019
  • U.S. Marines and Sailors conduct 24-hour flight operations in international airspace aboard the USS Wasp (LHD 1) in the Philippine Sea. Maritime prepositioning enables deployment flexibility and an increased capability to respond rapidly to a crisis or contingency with a credible presence.
    The F-35B is the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant of the aircraft. Similar in size to the A variant, the B sacrifices about a third of the A variant's fuel volume to accommodate the vertical flight system. Unlike other variants, the F-35B has no landing hook. The "STOVL/HOOK" control instead engages conversion between normal and vertical flight. Jet thrust is sent directly downwards during vertical flight.

      @Hi Khang
      That seems to be the case,
      Insufficient thrust for taking off vertically,
      Pity they didn't think it all the way through.
      Good looking machine though.

    I just LOVE seeing the F-35 hovering in the middle of the air!!! Such advanced technology. May the next jet have VTOL/STOVL capabilities and that from now and on people will only land and take off their F-35 vertically

    Don't get me wrong usa is a great nation, but with the amount of money us pumps into it's armed forces, they could have created a
    Fusion reactor
    Gone to the moon again this time to stay
    Mine regolith which is rich in h3 to run fusion reactors
    Would've become self-sufficient when it comes to energy requirements
    and thus would not have to get involved in conflicts in the middle east.
    This would've created a much more peaceful world, than military power could ever achieve.

      Im sure they would love to do that but they have to stay ahead or with hostile countries as far as military goes, they would not be able to defend aganist foreign threats if they lack.
