This is the first X-35 and was originally the X-35A but later modified to include the shaft-driven lift-fan propulsion system (an example is on display behind the aircraft) for testing of the STOVL concept. This aircraft was the first in history to achieve a short takeoff, level supersonic dash and vertical landing in a single flight. Now on display at the Smithsonian NASM Udvar-Hazy Center.

After ~30,000 saved photos on my HDD that took ~8.7 GBs of space I'm going to try smth other. For example to keep them here. Easier & faster.
