I can't seem to upload the video, has anyone else seen this?

Let me know, I'll forward you the email and maybe you can upload it. It looks crazy to me

Don't look legit...

Don't look legit...

for a couple reasons. Are they even flying f-35s off carriers yet? I don't think so. The ship isn't prepped for flight ops either dog zebra and all that stuff. gotta watch it closer.

That is what I thought, if it looks to crazy to be real, it probably is.

Dave,

This is fake - all CGI. Looks cool still.

What's really scary is that with the detail that CGI can accomplish nowdays and will only increase in the future this will lead to tampered or manufactured video evidence that can be submitted in a court of law. Just think, a jury of 12 convicts someone based on video evidence, because picture, and videos don't lie.

FYI: One of our club members is a Private Detective in Illinois. He has to use a film camera for any evidence he submits because the courts will not accept digital photos.

all make believe

all make believe

The rotor blades on the helicopters are not moving, and I can tell you the down wash from any VTOL, harrier, F35 would be enough to make them be moving around just a bit. Thats an old movie anyway, its been debunked a number of times.

My son is great at that game... He can hover that f-35 on it's tail right after takeoff.....
