The following air-to-air photo shows an F-35B, the STOVL (Short Take Off Vertical Landing) version of the Joint Strike Fighter, during a test flight.

Maybe it’s because it was taken as it was extending the landing gear with opened lift fan doors for vertical flight, but don’t you think the most costly aircraft in U.S. history looks like a Transformer in the act of transforming?
