    Amazing piloting skill

    You won't believe how this F-35 recovers from a forward 360 loop 200 ft above the flight deck after a seemingly uncommanded afterburner engagement while still in vertical trust mode.Wow, fast reflexes, perfect vectored thrust transition to forward flight.

    Boy, that would give you skid marks at the very least...
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Ok, now I know I've mentioned in other posts about puking in my helmet, but this one... Yeah, I would've lost all bodily functions! "Perfectly vectored" if you will
    Amazing, just amazing!

    Although I have neither the time or energy to prove it is real or fake I will say for certain that if fake the attention to detail "the planes shadow on the deck of the ship" is excellent!!!!

    The $70 million F-35's price tag buys you some exceptional software and vectored flight controls that will re-define what is aerodynamically possible. Currently such maneuvers seem as incredible as the Wright brothers first flights must have appeared to the horse-and-buggy folks a century ago.
    The video was sourced from US Navy so if fake it might be disinformation to discourage Russian enthusiasm for their Su-45 under development. I believe it is real.

    I can 100% for sure tell you it is FAKE. Those images are from a game called "Battlefield 2". I played the game in my single days and recognize everything there including the barely noticeable text above the plane during vertical takeoff (tells you who the pilot is). The game is first person shooter where you can also drive tanks, HMMV's, buggys, boats, fly planes, choppers and a great way to blow hours of time before you realize it. Now I blow my time on honeydo lists. Here's some video of gameplay:

    Battlefield 2 game clip does not seem to resemble texture and content of original posted video IMHO. Perhaps a better selected game clip might be more convincing. I remain open- minded and acknowledge that computer generated imagery can be quite convincing. Thanks for the heads-up and sorry if I errantly deceived you folks.
