Watch the F-35 in its first public aerobatic demonstration

It's not the first time the F-35 Lightning II has appeared at an air
show, but it is the first time it has wowed crowds with a full
aerobatic display. An F-35A – the conventional take-off and landing
(CTOL) variant – showed the public what it could do at the 2017 Paris
Air Show on Monday, in the aircraft's aerial demonstration debut.

The development of the F-35 has been far from smooth flying, with
numerous delays and cost blowouts raising doubts and attracting
criticism from many quarters. So, the flying displays at Paris–Le
Bourget Airport this week are intended to do more than just impress
the public –they need to impress the representatives of military
forces attending the show as well.

The full debut aerial demonstration with Lockheed Martin test pilot
Billie Flynn at the controls can be seen below. Attendees at the Paris
Air Show can also catch briefings being run by Lockheed Martin where
pilots will discuss the aerial demonstration and how the maneuvers on
display relate to operational flying of the F-35.
