F-35 arrives at Nellis AFB Fighter Weapons School

F35desertI won’t get into detail on this post, but check out this new USAF-produced video on the F-35 Lightning II (aka Joint Strike Fighter). Don’t fixate on the gee-whiz shots of the new jet. Pay attention to how they describe the USAF Fighter Weapons School’s role, and think about what they mean as they talk so much about “integrating” the F-35’s capabilities. More on FWS and weapon system integration in future posts…

Also, for context, the F-35 program is the largest, most complex and most far-reaching fighter development program ever. Here are the countries so far who have ordered, or will most likely order and operate the F-35:

 Australia
 Isreal
 Italy
 Netherlands
 Norway
 Turkey
 United Kingdom
 Canada
 Japan
 South Korea
