Lockheed Martin X-35B completes "Mission X"
For those of you with an interest in the ongoing JSF flight testing in full scale, The X-35B successfully completed a major company objective on July 19th.
"Mission X" was the Full Monty: A short vectored takeoff, transition to normal flight, a supersonic dash, a transition to vertical flight and a vertical landing.
All required flight test objectives have been met and the testing is scheduled to end later this week.

Yes, I read it. It is an awesome achievement for sure.
As for the home team I'd like to see them get there too.
