Last Friday evening, under a clear California desert sky, AF-7 (the first production F-35A accepted by the AF) arrived at Edwards AFB. We can expect another to deliver to Edwards in the next couple of weeks, and then another to deliver to Eglin AFB, FL around the end of the month. After that, one or two a month for the rest of the year, then even more after that. One down, 1762 more to go! (at least that is the number for the AF as of now, we'll wait and see if that holds up based on current fiscal realities...) Slowly, but surely, the next generation of tactical strike aircraft are entering the US inventory. I envy the young men and women on these forums who will one day have the chance to fly (and fight, and WIN!) in these awesome machines!
