This video is a couple of years old, but we just ran across it. Doing stall tests in a multi-million dollar HIGHLY sophisticated aircraft takes a lot of skill, and in this case a lot of altitude. F-35 Test Pilot Dave "Doc" Nelson explains the testing procedures and how the plane's flight control characteristics gives it a huge tactical advantage.

Thanks to Lockheed-Martin Videos for this clip.
