A Casual Hover
An F-35B Lightning just made a special appearance at the 2023 RAF Cosford Air Show this June. Flown by a pilot from 809 Naval Air Squadron, the F-35B flew in from RAF Marham, which is the home of the Royal Air Force’s F-35Bs.
During its short visit, the Lightning was able to perform a few fly bys to the crowd’s delight.
However, its best moment was definitely at the 3-minute mark, when we got to see the Lightning hover in mid-air!
Ted Coningsby, the video uploader, was able to capture how the F-35 uses its jet engine to hover perfectly.
What a fantastic feat of engineering!
