The Remarkable F-35B: Witness the Transition from Full-Throttle Jet to Hovering Helicopter

I work on F-35s as a profession. The B variant typically avoids vertical takeoffs, as it can jeopardize the surface below, posing risks of damage and the potential to blow debris into the aircraft and engine inlets. As evident in the footage, a brief takeoff run is nearly always executed for the F-35B. It is capable of landing vertically, however, which demands less thrust.

This is a revision of a previous comment in which I stated that the B model cannot perform vertical takeoffs. After reviewing comments here, watching VTOL footage, and consulting the engineer who initially informed me, I have updated this statement. I was also told that current operational procedures prohibit vertical takeoffs unless a specific surface is present beneath the jet. Thus, I was mistaken.

It’s unbelievable that I am a 1/300,000,000th part owner of this incredible aircraft! I only wish I could utilize it more frequently. Frankly, these planes are so costly and intricate, what are the chances this aircraft will EVER actually employ its guns against another plane in midair?

They are so expensive that I suspect the Navy simply avoids real danger and sends in reliable F-16s for actual combat. Imagine the amount of taxpayer money invested in this endeavor.

A cutting-edge, ground support aircraft! With a MARINE piloting that ground support!! That would provide me with greater confidence in a H๏τ combat zone, having a couple of Marines overhead! GOD BLESS AMERICA.
