F-35A Lightning II icy runway testing

A U.S. Air Force F-35A Lightning II multi-role fighter aircraft taxis on the runway Nov. 4, 2017, at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. During the testing, a portion of the runway is covered by a sheet of ice where the aircraft taxis at high speed before suddenly stopping to test its braking capabilities.
