F-35s at RAF Marham

Postby VH-WAL » Thu Jul 30, 2020 7:11 am

Summer appeared for a day here in the UK so we went for a 2.5 hour drive down to Marham in Norfolk. I took a number of F-35 photos from quite a few different angles to create a portfolio detailed enough to reinforce my opinion its the ugliest goddam jet I have ever seen. I remember a SAAB rep describing the F-35 as the fat kid with a magic cloak, it is true.... that rear fuselage looks like a dunny roll tube and the shape of the fuselage in the dust bin lid area is just awful. Something else to note, my god it is REALLY REALLY LOUD! Anyhoos I'll put a few pics in as a taster, go to the photostream to see the whole schmozzle. Amazingly the missus thinks it is the best plane she has ever seen (she likes things tidy without missiles, pods and fuel tanks hanging off them)

I reckon the best description of it that I have heard is that it is “the modern day Brewster Buffalo”.

(Edit : And that’s not in reference to it’s looks it’s in reference to it’s capability!).

Thanks for sharing Wal, I think the B is the ugliest of the lot, the C has some semblance of normalcy.

Though I must say the A model shape is growing on me, much the same as the QANTAS legless roo has.

The Men in the White Coats should be knocking on your door any minute now to take you away to the Funny Farm.

(More for the latter and not as much for the former!).
