Very nice. I wish that I knew more about this aircraft. I think it beat Boeing's design submission? This is a VTOL type aircraft?

You are neally correct. This version which is the F-35A isnt a VTOL aircraft just a standard aircraft, however its sister version which is due to make its maiden flight around may if i remember correct is, which is the F-35B. There is also the US carrier variant F-35C, which i think has shorter fatter wings with probably foldable wings and tail hook ect. And yes it did beat Boeings design (X-32) as that was ugly!!

Crisp, clean, clear shot of a bird with great (F-16ish) potential! Does the canopy really open up like a MiG-21?!?!

Far from the prettiest fighter in the world. It looks like rumpled scale model of f-22.
