More F-35s at Eglin

09/01/2011: Two F-35As, AF-10 and AF-11, along with two F-16 chase aircraft, are poised for takeoff to Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. August 31. They arrived at the base later that day.  AF-10 and AF-11 completed the 90-minute flight marking the ninth and tenth F-35 deliveries of 2011.

The pair of conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) jets will be used for training pilots and maintainers at Eglin’s new F-35 Integrated Training Center. Earlier we discussed the arrivals of AF-8 and AF-9 and discussed the production schedule with a senior Lockheed official. And we discussed with the Deputy Wing Commander the way ahead at Eglin.  We will publish an interview with a senior USMC official at Eglin discussing the maintenance revolution associated with the aircraft.
