Second half of the video is about 4 or 5 tries at the same repositioning maneuver with small adjustments. First half is interesting though. Looks like a Hornet that accelerates better.

That seems to be the message coming from the pilots flying the thing.

20 seconds. Less than a Hornet. Jet stays clean with internal ordnance, likely already toting around a full fuel load. (Same configuration for the Raptor demo.)

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.
