    Gear down, flaps out, all bombed, missiled and gunned-up, in a steep bank and in burner—this has to be the best photo of an F-35 yet. Additionally, the navalized F-35C, shown here, with its larger wing, has to be the most photogenic out of the Joint Strike Fighter family. When you add in pair of AIM-9Xs, a quartet of GBU-12s, a center-line 25m gun podand some nice light, it just screams “futuristic war wagon” from this angle.

    If I'm not mistaken, this photo not only features logistics support, but also a member of the clandestine "Phoenix Ravens" - also known as "Murder Crews" - special operations group.

    Any smart versions of the MK 77? Seems like a perfect time for a resurrection of the Napalm Strike.
