This was the first public appearance of a joint strike fighter aircraft at an air show. The F-35C is a fifth generation strike fighter with stealth capability and has larger wing surfaces and a reinforced landing gear designed for the carrier environment.

  1. Damn. I was on a mini-vacation for my birthday that day, and about an hour’s drive away from Andrews. I knew the show was there, and I tried to talk my wife into making the trip over there for a couple hours, but she wasn’t too keen on it. So I didn’t press it, even though it was MY birthday.

    But if I would’ve known an F-35 was there….

  2. Yea, I’ve enjoyed all of the airshows/flight demos I’ve been too. Taking in one that featured some trick tech like the F35 woulda’ been sweet. Sorry you missed it!
