I was wrong, no wing-tip mounts. Those pods are part of the wing and not removable.

Lockheed Martin Delivers First USAF Production F-35 Lightning II



FORT WORTH, Texas, May 9th, 2011 -- The U.S. Air Force has accepted into its fleet the first of a planned 1,763 production-model Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] F-35 Lightning II stealth fighters.

The signing of formal acceptance documents for the jet, known as AF-7, took place at Lockheed Martin’s F-35 final assembly plant in Fort Worth, Texas, Thursday, May 5. The jet flew to Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., on Friday to begin its flight testing program.

“This first aircraft is the beginning of the modernization of U.S. Air Force, Marine and Naval Air power and for our coalition partners around the world,” said Larry Lawson, Lockheed Martin executive vice president and F-35 program general manager. “The F-35 family of aircraft will bring an incredible increase in capability that our men and women defending us deserve. Today we begin to fulfill the vision of our government and international customers.” F-35s have completed more than 865 flights since flight-testing began in late 2006. In addition to AF-7, eight more production-model F-35s have rolled out and are being prepared for delivery.

The F-35 Lightning II is the most advanced multirole fighter in the world, combining Very Low Observable stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully fused sensor information, network-enabled operations and reduced sustainment costs. The Lightning II’s sensor suite is the most powerful and comprehensive of any fighter in history, and will merge with an unprecedented networking capability to give unmatched situational awareness. Supersonic launch of internal weapons, including maximum-speed (Mach 1.6) launch of internal air-to-air missiles, is a feature of all F-35s.

Three distinct variants of the F-35 will replace the A-10 and F-16 for the U.S. Air Force, the F/A-18 for the U.S. Navy, the F/A-18 and AV-B Harrier for the U.S. Marine Corps, and a variety of fighters for at least nine other countries.

Lockheed Martin is developing the F-35 with its principal industrial partners, Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 126,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation’s 2010 sales from continuing operations were $45.8 billion.

Yeah the F-35 looks pretty nice, but I think the F-14 looks the best!

Too bad Maple Flag was canceled due to Libya I'm heading up to Cold Lake on Friday and was hoping to see some foreign fighters in the show.

This is the lowest pass I've ever seen. Any lower and he's literally on the ground:

Belka are you with 410 or 409? LCol Hamilton gave me a little tour of 410 yesterday and it was pretty impressive. Even got to spend 25 minutes in the sim, what a blast. I only died once

LOL, the new or old sim? I played around on the old sim during my course. A/A refuelling is hard. When I couldn't make contact with the basket I did a loop and took out the herc with an AIM9. I'm with 409, shame you are here for such a shitty weekend.

No big deal, it's cool to be back here. At least the rain held off for my dads show in the Sabre.

I'm sure it'll get messy at the mess tonight. Might join in on the Crud wars

EDIT - Flew in the new sim, it's awesome.

Got to see the 2011 CF-18 demo this weekend. Check out this years paint scheme and a video of his high show.

We aren't taking delivery of our first F35's until 2016, and they will be in very limited numbers. Between the training of pilots and ground crews, and all the necessary infrastructure that would need to be in place I would highly doubt you'll see one anytime soon. At least not in Canadian colours.
