This is the latest official video released by the F-35 team on their website
. It shows flight test footage of
AA-1 and it also gives some information. The video contains fuel dump testing footage which once again confirms the function of the "white paint"
discussed on another thread here on ATS.
Nothing too revealing on the video but I was impressed at the speed and takeoff profile of AA-1 while in afterburner.

These on the other hand are picture of the BF-1 airframe going through final assembly. This is the first STOVL F-35B prototype airframe and the first
Lightning aircraft built with the redesign modifications (see 2,000 pounds lighter).
