Re: TESTING AIRCRAFT - Real X-35B displayed at 2002 Edwards Open House

The person you talked to at the 2002 Edwards Open House was wrong.

There are pictures on the internet of the F-35 mockup at the Miramar MCAS airshow last year (link below). The mockup did not have any sign of control surfaces. The control surfaces of the X-35B displayed at Edwards were deflected, revealing the actuators underneath. The X-35B displayed at the 2002 Edwards AFB open house was definitely the real thing.

Now you can relish the fact that you have actually seen the real X-35B, even though you didn't think so at the time.
