 Check this out

 

Read the text before watching the video
F-35 unintentional loop at takeoff on a carrier

This guy clearly has brass and you know the sailors on the flight deck had a
cow when they saw this unfold in front of them. Intentional? Hardly!

This is unbelievable!

F-35 unintentional loop at takeoff a real "check your laundry" event.

A supremely well-trained US Navy pilot, ice running in his veins instead of
blood, fully regains control of his $70 million, F-35 joint strike force
fighter, after a problematic vertical take-off attempt... Watch as the rear
vertical thruster fires to cause the problem.

There's nothing about this the pilot enjoys. If he could have ejected at
100' upside down and lived, he would have. Looks like the afterburner kicks
in while still vectored for vertical takeoff. Lockheed would call this a
"software malfunction" and do a little more "regressive testing". This is a
good demonstration of power-to-weight ratio of this aircraft! And talk about
stability control... wow!

If he didn't come out of the loop wings-level, it probably would have been
bad news; maybe taking some of the carrier with him!

Add to this flying through your own exhaust, which can lead to equipment
malfunctions, as in "flame out". The F-35 is single engine aircraft with
vertical takeoff/landing capability, but it has the aerodynamics of a
Steinway piano at zero airspeed. This is the most unbelievable piece of
flying you will ever see in your life.

This guy's coolness saved a 70 million-dollar aircraft! On the other hand,
he might not have had time to react to anything except just ride it.

I bet you'll watch it at least 2 times!

I have to agree with Dennis, Just the way it pivots perfecly like it was tied to something should tell you that. I will tell you the lift for that aircraft comes from a huge fan in the center of its belly not the exhaust nozzle. We make the drive shaft for this Joint Strike Fighter JSF here where I work. It is about 5 feet long and 10in in dia. Titanium center tube to reduce weight. Still not in full production, with the cost of this plane and the Govt spending the orders were really reduced. The non vert lift model is kewl also.

But it is a cool video!

Yep this clip actually came out in 2009, notice no flight deck Airmen on the deck and the ammuniction meter in the corner shows it's a video game.
I may not know "Jack"....but I always wonder if "Jack" knows my wife? LOL

Well, I was sucked in at first.  But doing a little checking it seems the video is a capture from a video game.  If it were a real test flight there would have been multiple camera angles and people everywhere.
 
Still pretty cool though...!!!
