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.

Slipping A Cirrus Into Scottsdale

CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE:

CLICK here to watch the landing in Santa Monica:

To be honest, I'm surprised at how on point my radio talking was considering my exhaustion! This is the visual approach into Scottsdale Airport arriving from Santa Monica, CA. Right before landing, you can see the nose deviate off center to the right for a few seconds. Since the controllers dropped me into the traffic pattern from 6,000 feet, my speed was a little fast and was a little high on the glide slope. The slipped helped me lose altitude quickly and not gain any more speed. Don't forget to subscribe!
