A friend asked me to have a look at this film about the F35, and the way its being worked up by an ex Harrier RAF pilot and a Royal Navy engineer. It actually makes interesting viewing:
Have a look and make your mind up whether this is designed to appease critics of the F35 compared to the Harrier, or is a genuine attempt to show it in it’s best light. At least the two Brits in the film sound convinced. They also seem to be testing weapons, hmm. Strange take-off configuration with the top inlet open all the way down the deck and beyond. The landings look very much the same as a Harrier landing on deck.
I reserve judgement, but it does look promising.
