Sitting at MacDill AFB watching a pair of F-35's work the pattern. A few interesting observations: 1. Approach is a lot like I fly in my Decathlon: chop power abeam the numbers and fly continuous descending turn to runway. Most other fighters I've watched seem to prefer a flatter approach from 1-2 miles straight in. 2. VERY high angle of attack on approach. Slow airspeed too, doesn't look much faster than a 172. 3. Looks like pilots are in a banked slip on short final to maintain runway visibility, due to high AoA.
