F-35 Lightning AA-1 in flight

We’ve entered “All Joint Strike Fighter, All The Time” mode here at MO. Here’s a shot of the first aircraft (AA-1) during its first flight last Friday. Notice that the JSF team national flags are, as several readers predicted and later confirmed, “right” and in order of precedence on this side.

For a much larger version of the shot, CLICK HERE. From the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics first flight photos page, which has several more hi-res shots.


  1. All Strike Fighter, all the time’ What happened to ‘All Stryker, all the time?’ When will we see ‘All strippers, all the time?’ ;-)
