May 26, I had the opportunity to witness aviation history with a small group of reporters invited to the USS Wasp amphibious ship to witness a few hours of the first-ever F-35B Operational Test (OT-1) trials off the coast of North Carolina. I'm posting some of the many videos I collected to give our readers a sense of what we saw on the boat. This is a long video -- 8 plus minutes. But, if you stick with it, here&#39;s what you&#39;ll see. And, a word of caution. Turn down your speakers or headphones, or grab a cranial. It&#39;s very loud. <p><strong><em>1:19</em></strong>: Notice when the lift fan doors open and nozzle angles down (the scorch marks are from repeated take offs at this 400 ft. position).</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/video/f-35b-operational-test-trials" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/video/f-35b-operational-test-trials#comments Video Defense Thu, 28 May 2015 16:09:00 +0000 1311141 at http://aviationweek.com F-35B Operational Test Trials, Part 2 http://aviationweek.com/video/f-35b-operational-test-trials-part-2 <div class="node-body video-body"><p>Here is a rare glimpse (at least until the&nbsp;F-35B&nbsp;IOCs&nbsp;in July) of a&nbsp;SeaHawk&nbsp;taking off followed by an F-35 launch onboard the USS Wasp May 26 during OT-1. The helicopter is a requirement for search and rescue in the event of a problem. I captured the rescue&nbsp;SeaHawk&nbsp;taking off and a glimpse of Lee Hudson, managing editor of Inside the Navy.<br /> It&#39;s rare to see this combination of takeoffs...so I thought I&#39;d share with our readers.&nbsp;</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/video/f-35b-operational-test-trials-part-2" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/video/f-35b-operational-test-trials-part-2#comments Video Defense Thu, 28 May 2015 16:09:00 +0000 1311231 at http://aviationweek.com Sikorsky’s S-97 Raider First Flight http://aviationweek.com/video/sikorsky-s-s-97-raider-first-flight <div class="node-body video-body">Sikorsky’s S-97 Raider high-speed helicopter made an hour-long first flight on May 22 at the company’s development flight center in West Palm Beach, Florida. The rigid coaxial-rotor Raider hovered and maneuvered at low speed, with its pusher propulsor disconnected (but turning due to friction). The flight begins a year-long, roughly 100-flight-hour test program to expand to Raider’s flight envelope to meet Sikorsky’s key targets of 220-kt. cruise speed carrying weapons, hover at 6,000 ft. on a 95F day, and 3g maneuverability at speed. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/video/sikorsky-s-s-97-raider-first-flight" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/video/sikorsky-s-s-97-raider-first-flight#comments Video Defense Fri, 22 May 2015 16:09:00 +0000 1308591 at http://aviationweek.com Podcast: Top Performing Airlines of 2015 http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/podcast-top-performing-airlines-2015 <div class="node-body video-body">Who are the top performing airlines of 2015?
