Video: RAF F-35B in 4K

F-35 JSF

The first F-35B delivered to the British Royal Air Force was joined by two USMC F-35Bs at the RIAT (Royal International Air Tattoo) at RAF Fairford, and they put on a nice demonstration - not only of the F-35's maneuverability, but also the B-variants ability to land vertically.

This was the F-35B's British debut, and it looks like things went quite well!
