F35 Air Show: A look at the F-35 Flight Capabilities
brief overview of the Lockheed Martin F-35 “Lightning II” aircraft.
the F-35 is a stealth multi role fighter with a single seat; capable of flying in all weather. It was designed to perform ground to ground, air to ground & air to air fighting missions. The united states plans to buy over 2000 of these 5th generation fighter jets at a cost of more than a $1 trillion making it the most expensive fighter jet program in aviation history. Unit cost & maintenance 6 of this aircraft is well over $116 million.
the F-35 program was designed to replace the f-16, f-18 & A-10 airplanes but is highly doubtful to be more exceptional in all those roles. The high cost, complexity, & delays have thrown the entire program into the media spotlight.
It is armed with a GAU-22 four barrel version cannon, has two internal weapons stores & external points on its wing for mounting missiles.
