The U.S. Air Force F-35 Lightning II Demo Team will perform at the 2020 OC Air Show on August 15-16, 2020 over the beaches and boardwalk of Ocean City, Maryland. The F-35 Lightning II, also known as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, is the most advanced stealth fighter in the world today.

The full capabilities demonstration features 12 different maneuvers that last approximately 15 minutes. During the demo, some of the maneuvers will see the F-35 as low as 200 feet off the ground and at speeds that exceed 700 mph. The two most eye-popping maneuvers include the pedal turn where the F-35 drops in a tight turn at near zero forward speed and the tactical pitch where the jets enters at a high speed and then turns abruptly to literally skid across the sky.

 

The F-35 is a single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth fighter that has just been declared operational by three branches of the U.S. Department of Defense. The fifth generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground attack, aerial intelligence and air defense missions. The F-35 has three main models: the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing version used by the Air Force, the F-35B short take-off and vertical-landing (STOVL) version used by the Marine Corps, and the F-35C carrier-based version that will be used by the Navy.


 

The F-35 is a A 5th Generation fighter with advanced stealth, exceptional agility and maneuverability, sensor and information fusion. The F-35 has network-enabled operations allowing multiple aircraft to communicate with each other in flight. 5th Generation technology provides greater survivability, situational awareness, and effectiveness for pilots, as well as improved readiness and lower support costs. As a true 5th Generation fighter, the F-35 has stealth designed in as part of the aircraft from the beginning.
