Did you notice that they've applied for an F35! :-o

Mr West I would wager good money that the first public appearance of the F35 will be at either RIAT or RAF Waddington in a couple of years time!

Well, the first operational F-35 unit in
Yuma, Arizona, has begun to receive
its aircraft, and I believe there are at
least a few appearances scheduled here
and there for this next summer....

It wouldn't be too difficult to bring two
over plus support personnel for cameo
appearances in Frogland and the UK....

Of course, bringing them by boat or by
C-5 Galaxy makes more sense at this point....

Who knows? Dave's friend Pete might
even do some of the flying!

I DO know that its makers AND your
military AND our military are quite
anxious to create some favo(u)rable
buzz concerning the F-35.....

No way to really know at this time...
