First F-35B Vertical Takeoff Test

An F-35B test aircraft completes its first-ever vertical takeoff (VTO) at NAS Patuxent River, Md., on May 10, 2013. While not a capability used in combat, VTOs are required for repositioning of the STOVL in environments where a jet could not perform a short takeoff. In these cases, the jet, with a limited amount of fuel, would execute a VTO to travel a short distance.

Notas
Dados: Ver seção "Especificações"

O Lockheed Martin F-35 "Lightning II" ou F-35 Joint Strike Fighter é um programa que visa a produção de três aeronaves stealth caça multi-função supersônicas, que fora desenvolvido para satisfazer as necessidades de uma transformação na nova geração de armamento dos governos dos Estados Unidos, do Reino Unido, da Holanda, Austrália, Canadá, Itália, Dinamarca, Noruega, Turquia e de outros compradores, como Israel.
O F-35 foi concebido como projeto de três caças de 5ª geração, CTOL F-35A JSF, STOVL F-35B JSF, CV F-35C JSF, de relativo baixo custo, para a Marinha, Força aérea e Marines dos Estados Unidos, pois englobar três aeronaves em um mesmo projeto atenuou os elevados custos de desenvolvimento comparado aos três separados. No entanto, devido a sucessivos problemas de desenvolvimento, o objetivo de baixo custo não foi atingido.
As principais armas são transportadas em compartimentos internos, para um elevado grau de discrição. Mas armas adicionais podem ser transportadas externamente, em missões em que a furtividade não é necessária.
Desde que foi concebido, o F-35 tem se envolvido em controvérsias. Atrasos, aumento nos custos de desenvolvimento (projetados inicialmente em US$ 59 bilhões de dólares) e problemas no projeto em geral mancharam a reputação do caça, que deveria ser uma alternativa mais barata ao caríssimo F-22. Somado, o custo de desenvolvimento, construção e manutenção girou em torno de US$ 400 bilhões de dólares. Com este valor, o projeto do F-35 se tornou o programa de armamento mais caro da história.Em 2015, após quinze anos de desenvolvimentos, o primeiro esquadrão de F-35 foi liberado para o serviço ativo na força aérea dos Estados Unidos

Incredible: F-35B vs AV-8B Harrier II Short Takeoff & Vertical Landing

Incredible: F-35B vs AV-8B Harrier II Short Takeoff & Vertical Landing

The F-35B short takeoff/vertical landing (STOVL) variant is the world’s first supersonic STOVL stealth aircraft. It is designed to operate from austere bases and a range of air-capable ships near front-line combat zones. It can also take off and land conventionally from longer runways on major bases. The U.S. Marine Corps' F-35B aircraft reached initial operational capability (IOC) on July 31, 2015, when a squadron of 10 F-35Bs was declared ready for world-wide deployment.

The AV-8B Harrier II is the U.S. military’s only short takeoff, vertical landing jet aircraft in current inventory. Originally flown in the late 1960s, the Harrier has undergone a series of improvements that have increased safety, range and lethality. The AV-8B is a key component of the Marine Corps’ “all STOVL force” concept, allowing Marines to be supported in austere conditions in expeditionary environments.

22,000 pounds of thrust enable the Harrier II to hover like a helicopter, and then blast forward like a jet at near-supersonic speeds. Like every aircraft in the Marine fleet, this aircraft is used for multiple missions, which include attacking and destroying surface and air targets, escorting helicopters, engaging in air-to-air defense, providing reconnaissance and applying offensive and defensive support with its arsenal of missiles, bombs and an onboard 25mm cannon. Offering the versatility to conduct almost any mission, the Harrier II provides the ideal blend of firepower and mobility to effectively counter enemies engaged by our ground forces.

The AV-8B V/STOL strike aircraft was designed to replace the AV-8A and the A-4M light attack aircraft. The Marine Corps requirement for a V/STOL light attack force has been well documented since the late 1950s. Combining tactical mobility, responsiveness, reduced operating cost and basing flexibility, both afloat and ashore, V/STOL aircraft are particularly well suited to the special combat and expeditionary requirements of the Marine Corps. The AV-8BII+ features the APG-65 radar common to the F/A-18, as well as all previous systems and features common to the AV-8BII.

The AV-8B will soon be replaced by the F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.

Amazing Short Take-Off Gulfstream G650 – Special Livery

The Gulfstream G650 has a truly astonishing performance what can be seen in the video. The G650 achieved an impressive short take-off distance at Bern Airport in Switzerland. The two powerful Rolls-Royce BR725 engines accelerate the G650 nearly to the speed of sound while cruising at up to 51,000 feet (15,500 m). The first Swiss registered G650 HB-IVJ has been given a special livery. It advertises for Baha Mar, the luxury resort of superlatives in the Bahamas.

REVERSE THRUST
The pilots engaged the reverse thrust during taxi to slow down the plane. Why didn't they use the wheel brakes instead? The reverser helps to keep the wheel brakes cool and fully operational when needed. Braking excessively does not only wear out the brakes more quickly but increases the danger of glowing hot wheel brakes. Cooling them down takes plenty of time until the aircraft is allowed take off again.

GULFSTREAM G650
The Gulfsream Aerospace G650 is marketed as the world's current fastest business jet with a top speed of 0.925 Mach (982 km/h). It is capable of traveling 8'055 miles (12,964 km) and will even cruise at 51,000 ft. The remarkable jet is equipped with two powerful Rolls-Royce BR725 turbofan engines. Enjoy the great engine sound and the close-up view of the Gulfstream G650, one of the best private jets on the market.
