Video animation of F-35 showing short takeoff and landing

Good animation video showing how the F-35 can take off vertically and land vertically. It keeps on reminding me of the British Harrier in how it moves.

The BF-1 short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant is grounded for a few more months until its engine is fitted with with redesigned turbine blades. It will be years before anyone sees the F-35B in operation.

The video was done two years ago for Northrop Grumman.

The one depicted is the X-35 [the prototype that won the contract for the Joint Strike Fighter and became the F-35].
