Just a few days ago, we showed you a video of the F-35C's first carrier landing, aboard the USS Nimitz. The naval variant of the F-35 is aboard Nimitz as part of its first round of at-sea testing.

While the landing video from Monday was pretty cool, the Navy has released another video, showing the F-35 not only land aboard the flattop, but also complete its first catapult-assisted takeoff and perform a touch-and-go, which is probably the highlight of this video.

The action kicks off at around 50 seconds in. Take a look.
