A few of us at All Things Aero came across this pretty neat clip of land-based carrier practice in Yuma, AZ. Not too shabby of a vantage point!

F-35B pilots, Maj. Aric Liberman (05 jet) and Capt. Brian Hansell (01 jet), with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121 based out of Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Ariz., perform short take off and vertical landings as part of required flying field carrier landing practices (FCLP) at the stations auxiliary landing field, Wednesday, May 6, 2015. The landing field simulates the flight deck of an aircraft carrier to prepare pilots for landing and taking off at sea.
