Head-on view of an F-35B in parking position. Note the open white-painted cover behind the cockpit: this is the air inlet for the engine used for vertical take-offs and -landings. Only the B-version has STOVL (Short Take-Off/Vertical Landing) capability. Customers for the F-35B are the U.S. Marine Corps and the Royal Navy.

More information about the F-35 in all its variants can be found on f35.com.
