Video: F-35 lands on an aircraft carrier for the first time ever

The US Navy variant of the F -35 Lightning II has landed aboard an aircraft carrier for the first time ever. This arrested landing by Navy test pilot Cmdr. Tony Wilson on the USS Nimitz marks a new two-week period of testing at sea. Watch it from multiple angles:

According to Wilson: "Today is a landmark event in the development of the F-35C. It is the culmination of many years of hard work by a talented team of thousands. I'm very excited to see America's newest aircraft on the flight deck of her oldest aircraft carrier, the USS Nimitz."
