Interesting article:

Quote:
Not as agile as the Super Hornet nor as fast as the Typhoon? Don’t you believe it, says Lockheed Martin test pilot Billie Flynn. He will put the F-35A through its paces at Le Bourget this week, proving that the aircraft is more maneuverable than any he has flown, he says, including Boeing’s F/A-18, the Eurofighter, and his own company’s F-16 Viper.

“After 10 years since first flight, with our first opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities and the maneuverability of the F-35, we are going to crush years of misinformation about what this aircraft is capable of doing,” Flynn said in an interview with Aviation Week.

I can't wait for all the "Naysayers" to explain how the aircraft is still not maneuverable, does not have enough thrust, etc. 5 or 6 years ago, I thought this aircraft was going to be another F-111, glad it appears I was wrong so far.

I'd be surprised if either of those turns was flat out. For comparison here's a Typhoon going flat out over first 180deg followed by a recovery turn over the second 180deg.
