But can it land on a carrier?

At first I thought that takeoff was just a tricky camera angle, but I saw some other footage of the vertical take-off, combat takeoff, tail wind landing etc. Wow.

I want to see it do a 360 roll like the one did years ago over Seattle.

not too long ago Boeing B52's were dumping thousands of tons of bombs on Vietnam... how things change over just a few decades.

Some notes on the F787 flight.

The empty operational aircraft is something like 277,000 lb. This may have been a green bird, without interior/seats/galleys/loos, etc, which is a lot. Fuel load would have been minimal, so let's assume fuel weight is equal to the stuff which is not installed in a green aircraft.

Total thrust is 2 X 71,000 lbs. A pound of thrust is sort of like a horsepower, as the relation depends on speed.and a whole bunch of other variables.

So, approximately, you have about half a horsepower to every pound of aircraft - just like a formula one car.

So it can't fly sustained vertical, like a F16, (which has more thrusties than poundies) but is really rather sporty.

Weight & balance calculations needed to be hand manipulated to account for the extra weight of the pilot's brass balls.

Finally, although true vertical flight didn't happen, clever positioning of the camera craft made it look that way.

Magic video, even though you now know the tricks behind it.

Here is another take on the flight, you can choose your view.

Ben Sandilands, who rarely gets excited about anything, has this to say.

Details here.

Much better to go to the YouTube site & watch in full resolution.

Moggies name was Orville. He was a bit be-Wilbur-ed, but the pilot did the Wright thing. Was this at Kittyhawk?

The OP asks to be considerate with sharing, hence the link to the original @ you tube.

Amazing & inspiring.

I met Capt. Darryl Greenamyer at an airshow once. He was displaying his F104 speed record jet. Wiki.

Appalled? try this! Notice that it was called an "incident", not an "accident".
