F-35, Due for Israel in 2016, in First Vertical Landing (Video)

The F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter plane, which Israel hopes to be flying in 2016, went through its first operational training mission several days ago at the Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. Two weeks after carrying out its first vertical landing, a feature that is not included in the F35 that Israel is buying.

Israel has ordered several F-35 planes, which have range of 600 miles and are designed to penetrate foreign air defenses and bolster military superiority, especially over enemies farther away from the country, such as Iran.

Skyrocketing costs and questions of safety have beleaguered the F-35 program.

Below is a video of the vertical landing.
