An unintentional loop

Well...I would say there's nothing about this the pilot enjoys. If he could have ejected at 100' upside down and lived, he would have. Looks like the afterburner kicks in while still vectored for vertical takeoff. Lockheed would call this a "software malfunction" and do a little more "regressive testing". Good demo of power-to-weight ratio of this aircraft, and stability control. If he didn't come out of the loop at wings-level, would have been bad news, probably taking some of the carrier with him!
Flying through your own exhaust can lead to equipment malfunctions, too, as in "flame out". F-35 is single engine...unpowered and zero airspeed has al the aerodynamics of a Steinway piano. This is the most unbelievable piece of flying you will ever see in your life.
This is how a supremely well-trained US Navy pilot, ice water running in his veins instead of blood, fully regains control of his $70 million fighter jet, after a problematic vertical take-off attempt. Watch as the rear vertical thruster fires to cause the problem.....
