F-35 Lightning II

Lockheed Martin's Joint Strike Fighter, the X-35C, nears completion of flight testing at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. The concept demonstrator will move to Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md., for flight testing at sea level. Testing at NAS Patuxent River will give evaluators a more accurate picture of the JSF's carrier-suitability performance. The JSF has made 20 sorties at Edwards to field test carrier landings, expansion of the flight envelope and initiating tanker-qualification trials. (Courtesy photo)
