The F-35 and how it compares to other US jet aircraft like the F-16, F-15, F-18 and F-22 is a hot topic in military aviation circles these days. Watch the video and hear from an F-35 pilot who just participated with the aircraft in the recent Red Flag 2017 exercise at Nellis Air Force Base.

Let’s start a conversation here about the F-35 versus the other US military jets. What plane do you think is better and why. There is no doubt the F-35 will be the future of US military aviation but will it totally replace all the other aircraft or just supplement them? What are the gains and losses with the F-35?

What else would you rather do on a weekend than critique the F-35!
