Lethality, Survivability, Adaptability: F-35A Lightning II

If you haven’t seen the classic movie from the 80’s about fighter jets (you know, the one with Maverick, Goose, and Iceman), I would highly recommend it. For most middle-aged Americans, it was what made them fall in love with fighter jets. If you have seen it then you’ll love this short video about how far combat aviation has come since then with the U.S. Air Force’s F-35A multirole fighter jet!
