The F-35 Lightning II is a comically expensive fighter jet with a host of problems but one thing you can’t deny: it can sure look badass. Like badass in the being able to see a glimpse of the future today badass. Like badass as in this flying killer machine totally looks like it’s from a sci-fi movie badass. Like badass, badass.

Here’s a sweet profile view of the US Air Force F-35 Lightning II at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. Few planes look better when on the ground (or grounded, heh).

I want it to be something behind the plane but the focus is right, so depth is at the planes plane, and there is nothing we see next to or behind the plane, strange.
