F-35 Lightning

The F-35 Lightning II by Lockheed Martin is a “single-seat, single-engine, stealth-capable military strike fighter, a multi-role aircraft that can perform close air support, tactical bombing, and air superiority fighter missions.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Apparently the plane lands like a chopper (with super lift engines) and thinks like a pilot (with a HAL-esque brain). It is also said to be the most expensive plane to date and is a modded version of the F-35 Lightning II that lands perpendicularly like a helicopter.
