The F-35C is the naval variant of the F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft. It is fitted with larger wings than the other two versions (F-35A, F35B), foldable wingtip section, and sturdier landing gear to resist the stresses of carrier arrested landings. In June 2013, the US Navy received the first batch of F-35C aircraft and before the end of that year, this short-take-off and landing fighter was operating from the deck of the USS Nimitz (CVN-68). Down below, a video flight tests.
