Yes, it is real. It will eventually be replacing the Harrier for the Marine Corps.

I've tried it before with FB video links and even after I log out they still work.

Anyway, thanks for the assistance John :)

At first I said "Holy crap...it's going down" but then I was like "WTF just happened????"

So I assumed it is a fake.....oh well.....technology is far away ahead of what our experiences have taught us so far.....

Hahahahaha...now I see...yeah, NOT real.

The Harrier (and likely the F35) will use the runway to launch. Generally they land using their VTOL abilities...at least on the LHD ships.

Who said this was real footage, it's a flight sim. The F-35 is a vertica and conventional take off plane. The loop is not possible at that altitude, the plane isn't that controllable during vertical take off to perform an maneuver that extreme.

Lol yeah that's off a computer game, a pretty good one you basically take off from the carrier to the island then shoot the shit out of the enemy from the air or on the ground changing vehicles as you go, I forget the game but it's a fair few years old now. I use to play it for hours! Now I'd rather play with her...

I didn't think that was real, the amount of thrust it would take seems highly impractical if it's even possible. Pretty cool to watch tho...
