F-35 Lands Vertically for the First Time

Well its been almost ten years of hype and a ton of delays, but we’ve finally got a replacement for the Harrier Jet. The F-35, as seen in the footage below, has finally preformed a vertical landing.
It took off at around 93 miles per hour (sounds like @Simon and his gang on a Saturday night, zing!). The pilot then swung it around and dropped into a hover, which he proceeded to descend from the sky and touched down with a small bump. Not to shabby! That guy needs his man card!
Check out the video and let us know what you think. Is this a game changer and a real replacement for the Harrier?
Stay Manly!
