F-35 Fires Gun During Aerial Test for First Time

For the first time, a US Air Force F-35 fighter jet has successfully fired its internal gun from the air.
The aerial gun test marks another milestone in the Pentagon's effort to certify the F-35A's internal 25mm Gatling gun. Lockheed Martin released a video Monday of F-35 test pilot Maj. Charles “Flak” Trickey firing the first aerial gun burst from the four-barrel weapon.
The F-35A completed the test during an Oct. 30 flight at Edwards Air Force Base, California.
