Apparently the U.S. Navy recently conducted sea trials with the F-35 in the Atlantic aboard the U.S.S. Wasp;

When I clicked on the link provided, a great view of the flight deck came up, but because I have a very slow satellite connection, it spent a considerable amount of time loading, and running videos really eats up my mega-bytes allowed.
From what little I saw, it was obviously filmed with a high quality camera. ( I hope it's worth watching)

Great video of the F-35 taking off and landing one the USS Wasp. Very good quality.

Amazing video, loved it!

One thing I've always thought when watching the B model is that, once in regular service, how often or likely is it for just one door or gimbal or whatever likely to fail? It is so cool to watch it 'transform' and impressive, but what if any of those several part movements fail is likely to happen and cause disastrous results?

I'm a big fan of the plane and hope it succeeds, but the complexity has always had me concerned.

Quoting HaveBlue (Reply 3):
whatever likely to fail?

Given how all those doors are being used at a fairly critical flight phase, Im certain they are set up with the same amount of redundancy as the primary flight controls. So, connected to 2 separate and independent hydraulic systems, and 3 separate, independent sets of electrical signals from the flight control computers.

That being said, the program would not have progressed to flying status if the Navy and Marine Corps werent satisfied that there was a procedure to deal with all the failure modes of those doors, just like every other critical system onboard.

Almost like watching something from an old science-fiction film.
