For the first time, an F-35A dropped an inert B61-12 nuclear bomb while flying at supersonic speed

November 25,2020, 1230pm: During a test in August, an F-35A dropped an inert B61-12 nuclear bomb from its internal bomb bay during a supersonic flight for the first time. The test with the B61-12 is also the first F-35A Dual Capable Aircraft test to be shown in an unclassified video.

Just a few months after the first photos of the F-35 testing the B61-12 nuclear bomb in 2019 for the F-35A Dual Capable Aircraft (DCA) program were released, the Sandia National Laboratories announced that the F-35 dropped for the first time an inert B61-12 nuclear bomb from its internal bomb bay during supersonic flight.
