Video: Lockheed Martin's Perspective on F-35 2012 Flight Testing


Lockheed Martin has just come out with their 2012 F-35 Flight Test at Edwards AFB video on YouTube. Their description:

Hear from the F-35 flight test team at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., about their progress in 2012 including envelope expansion, night flights, mission systems testing, weapons releases and high angle of attack flights. 

There's little or no airtime for criticism or unplanned challenges and the whole thing seems pretty scripted, as you might expect. But you also might be interested in it, so here it is.
