The June issue of AirForces Monthly goes on sale tomorrow and it features exclusive photos of the recent deployment by 388th Fighter Wing F-35As to RAF Lakenheath.
Gen Tod D. Wolters, US Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commander, said: “This is an incredible opportunity for USAFE Airmen and our NATO allies to host this first overseas training deployment of the F-35A aircraft. As we and our joint F-35 partners bring this aircraft into our inventories, it’s important that we train together to integrate into a seamless team capable of defending the sovereignty of allied nations. As part of the natural progression of the F-35 programme, an overseas training deployment has been part of the Air Force’s plan since the F-35A was declared combat capable last year.”
