Joint Strike Fighter Testing in 2012

In this Defense Department video, test engineers talk about the progress they made in 2012 testing the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter at Patuxent River, Maryland and other locations. Although the talk gets a little jargon-y at times (BF-01 is the first airplane produced of the "B" - vertical takeoff - variety), and the narrator occasionally sounds as though he's boasting for an airshow crowd, it's a good overview of the test program.
