1) I'd imagine someone is more of an expert than me on this topic, but I would assume that that speed brake door is linked to the lift fan doors.

2) Other than the fact that the carrier deck is still a moving target... but from what I've read being quoted from test pilots the F-35 is actually quite easy to handle in its vertical landing configuration.



........................ Yeah I'm thinking that the AC Carrier could move right out from under this plane if he hangs to long ........ once they commit and hit that deck, it really looks hard but it doesn't bounce any tires off the deck .. but for sure that front wheel assemble does take quite a shock / bend .. Amazing that top fan cover doesn't just go zingggggggg on take off .... being Airdale Navy but never on a carrier .. looked like for this AC a crewman stood near the end of the * runway * to show it more clearly ..........

Thanks for posting CD !! and welcome ........

Two things come to mind watching these carrier activities.
1) How do they get enough takeoff speed with that bloody great airbrake hanging upside the fuselage?
2) Much as I admire the technological achievements of all this, does anyone else find that landing on a carrier while hovering seems a little like cheating?!


I did a little digging - the F-35B carrier landings are on an amphibious assault ship the Marines use (the video was taken on the USS Wasp). Just like the Harriers.

There's also an F-35C carrier variant with no vertical takeoff and landing capability. It will be launched and recovered like the F-18's are now. Although Googling around it looks like they've been having trouble catching arrestor cables with the tail hook. Apparently the hook might be too close the the landing gear.

Why is visible vapor so cool in any form?

They made arrested landings with about a 60% success rate at the tail end of last year, with the 40% being attributed to the pilot landing to long.

HQs looking sweet Jim!

Anyone heading to the MCAS Yuma Air Show next month. if it happens obviously!

Kev


Hey Kev - I'm shooting a 10K race for the PAO at NAF El Centro on the 9th, so the actual air show at Yuma is out for me. That being said, I am planning on spending part of Friday shooting air show arrivals and practice at Yuma; then off to NAFEC. If the Yuma air show actually happens, I'd be happy to meet you and shoot said arrivals/practice - send me a PM if interested and we can coordinate further.

Erich - I think you photo of Fat Albert is very nice. The prop vapor is very cool and enhances your image. Great catch sir.

Boeing 777-300, probably the best looking airliner in production today.

I better get busy on the approval prints for Al, that process could take some time.

Hey Al, you guys have a Nestle product that's made in your neck of the woods called "Violet Crumble". They might as well be crack cocaine. They used to be sold in the US, but for some reason they aren't any more. I'm telling you, a case of those, (and I'll pay for them), could put someone in very good stead around HQ!

The polished Mustang accent, well stay tuned.



Violet crumbles !!!, Its taken me years of Rehab to ween off those things......ROFL...
Jim,...not that I'd want to influence you in any way,....but how many cases would you like
We got a few othwers too down here, made by a great Choclate company, called Cadburys,....sadly no longer Aussie owned...so good you guys bought it , ...

Now I know your weekness,...I will ehlp you in any way I can,.....
Violet Crumble,.Violet Crumble,.Violet Crumble, Violet Crumble..

Got some Rodeo shots for you guys later this week, just for something different....
I missed out onm a Double Spitfire fly at Temora on the weekened ,..damn it !! The only two flying Spitties in Australia & they're only 80 miles from here...

Thanks Jeff.

A Lockheed F-80C Shooting Star. I threw a boatload of filters and processing at this one. Not sure about it, but on the other hand there's only so much you can do with museum shots.

Heads up for the Gopro owners on the thread:

Using the built in wi-fi drains the battery pretty quickly.

Nice Tim. Beautiful mix of aviation and racing. Love the job you do with the Petit Lemans night shots.

Now that my daughter's hockey season is winding down, I've finally managed to create the team photo for them. Major mistake on my part, the captains were supposed to be in the middle, but in the scramble to set it up (we didn't have much time), I didn't notice they were too far right. Arrrggghhh.

My daughter is wearing the A on the captain's left.

Pretty day in Fort Worth today so wandered around down town. Nan and I thought we might to the zoo, but it was a zoo; apparently everyone else had the same idea and it was packed. So headed down to Sundance square and the Flying Saucer for some beer and chili. Then wandered by Bass Hall to the Fort Worth Water Gardens.

Nice Rob! A beautiful Lone Star day for sure. The G35 kept the Cub nestled in the hangar unfortunately.

That's a great team shot Mark, small hiccup not withstanding. I wouldn't have known that. Very nice composition and light.

Thanks Al! Do a little recon and see what a case of them would cost to buy and ship. If it's not just crazy, I'm in!
