I’m not sure if this is legit or not but I came across these pictures of the new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter under construction (designed by US and UK). By the looks of things its a pretty amazing piece of engineering but obviously horrendously complex!

It does a max speed of Mach 1.6 (1,200 mph, 2,000 km/h), can take-off and land vertically (VTOL), and is designed to be able to be fitted with directed-energy weapons, including solid state lasers and high-power microwave beams (seriously)! More photos here.

    Thankfully I live in a free country where the NSA has no reach… oh no, wait a moment, I live in the UK which is just the 51st state of America now?! Don't want to upset President Blair do we!

    WMD kit now to compliment their fighter-jet range – I think they call it 'progressive education' or something, others call it brainwashing 😉
