Air Force F-35A Weapons Release

Lockheed Martin video of an Air Force F-35A completing the first in-flight weapons release of a 2,000 pound GBU-31 BLU-109 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) on Oct. 16, 2012. The F-35A has gone on to make the first drop of an AMRAAM from one of its internal bays, although it was not a conventional powered missile “launch.”
