PACIFIC OCEAN (Nov. 4, 2014) F-35C Lightning II carrier variant Joint Strike Fighters launch from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) off the coast of San Diego. The launches and recoveries are part of initial at-sea Developmental Testing I (DT-I) for the F-35C, which commenced Nov. 3 and is expected to last two weeks. The F-35C is the carrier variant (CV) of the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter designed for the U.S. Navy as a first-day-of-war, survivable strike fighter complement to the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

    To be honest the F-35C carrier performance looks better than the F-18.

    This just was fantastic. I used to be on the USS_Hornet CVA- 12 many years ago and this brought back memoable memories in 1957-58. We didn't have these babies then, but older prop planes and older jets not like today. It still was a great experience when I was 17 years old and to see 22 year olds flying planes at that age. best Gene Micheli gnamic@aol.com
