Video of the new F-35 BF-01 Lightning II during Ground Testing

Check out all the features of the plane, at the bottom it looks like a fuel dump emerges. The flexibility of the exhaust duct system is surprising.

Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a single-seat, single-engine, stealth-capable military strike fighter, a multi-role aircraft that can perform close air support, tactical bombing, and air superiority fighter missions.

The F-35 has three different models; one is the conventional takeoff and landing variant, the second is short-takeoff and vertical-landing variant, and the third is a carrier-based variant.

The F-35 is descended from the X-35, the product of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. Its development is being principally funded by the United States with the United Kingdom and other partner governments providing additional funding.

It is being designed and built by an aerospace industry team led by Lockheed Martin with Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems as major partners.

Demonstrator aircraft flew in 2000, with the first flight on 15 December 2006.

That exhaust duct is amazing, expanding like a snake, well worth watching.
