Kind of funny as you and Zaph, both counters with a F35 vid of the Royal Netherlands Air force.
I know those vids, and somehow, the bests vids and pics on the web of the F35 are from the Royal Netherlands Air force.
And I like it!
But still, no descent report how so ever of a F35 doing plus mach speeds.
It is no secret, it is in the god don brochure.
I like the plane, but they gotta stop writing brochures before they fly the plane.
The X-35 first flew on 24 October 2000 and the F-35A on 15 December 2006.
