The first group of what will eventually be 16 F-35Bs has departed Miramar for Iwakuni Japan. The deployment called for 10 aircraft to go first, followed in a few months by 6 more.
Once at Iwakuni, the aircraft will perform their first shipboard deployment on the USS Bonhomme Richard. They'll spend at least one night at Elmendorf for crew rest, before continuing on.
