Oh they are performing at the air show?? Now I am jealous. All we ever get at Macdill is the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds and performances by the propeller planes. The JSOC jump team can be entertaining as well, but I would really like to see the new birds perform at our show.

At least we get an annual international special forces demonstration downtown, thats fun to watch as well. It typically accompanies an industry expo there as well.

The A models are supposed to do a heritage flight at RIAT, they said they're coming back after that, but the B models will do a full display, including a vertical landing, and in flight refueling from a KC-130J that went with them.

Are they doing this as a way to kind of demonstrate capabilities for potential contracts with our overseas allies? If so that would likely explain why they don't fly at shows at home. we own them, no need to market them to ourselves I guess. It'd be nice if they think of the fans of the show though.

They couldn't fly shows until they reached IOC, which is a big reason the A model is only there for the heritage flight. At this point only the B model has, and they've been trying to deal with post IOC commitments and training, so they haven't been to many shows. But now they're trying to show others what they're capable of, so they're doing flyovers of the Queen Elizabeths in the shipyards, and other places, and performing at RIAT and Farnborough.

Three F-35A models landed at Fairford at approximately 8pm local time today, joining the three B models that arrived yesterday. They will depart heading back to the US on July 13th.

They were planning a number of fly pasts leading up to RIAT. They were scheduled to do one past the Queen Elizabeth in the shipyard, but I'm not sure about the others.
