Re: F-35 Lightning II developments

F-35B 169787 was noted at NAS Fort Worth, Mar 31, 2021. Other than USMC markings it carried no other. Unsure on the the construction number. Could this be BF-114? Tally. These were unconfirmed before so I didn't post them, but it seems that BF-113 and BF-114 are indeed 169786 and 169787. At least t...

Re: F-35 Lightning II developments

Seen Mar 26, 2021 was 19-5534 without any markings. Also after a long delay ROKAF F-35A's AW-25/28 (20-025/20-028) delivered as Zesty 91/4, March 26, 2021. Initially planned for Hickam but the delay may have been due to tanker issues so they only went to Yuma on the first leg. Tally. This means the...

Re: F-35 Lightning II developments

Bjorn, 19-8723 and 19-8724 are the correct JASDF serials. Regards Mark Japanese 19-5823 and 19-5824 are also already flying. Greets, Does somebody know the LRIP for these two aircraft? Hans van Herk These are Lot 13 because they start with '19' instead of '09' for the Lot 12 aircraft. Lot 12 contai...
