BFD. The Harrier did this in 1960. Does this one have a cup holder?

idgaf really but A.) harrier was introduced in '69, and B.) afaik F-35 is a stealthy dogfighter, whereas the harrier was not particularly good at either of those things. I'd probably rather have.. like, ten harriers as opposed to one F-35, but I don't know what I'm talking about any more than you do.

If you're going to get pedantic on this, the Harrier first entered production service for the RAF in 1969 but first flew in 1960. As to whether I'd rather have a bunch of Harriers or an F35, that was never a question. Neither me nor any civilian will ever fly one, so I'd rather have a Learjet 25. A bit more practical, really.

someone should modify this with the exhaust being a stream of falling dollar bills. this plane is a gold-plated turd.

Meanwhile in Russia the Sukhoi takes of vertically.
