That was the F-22 avionics testbed, rather than the F-35. It's actually the first 757 ever built, IIRC. I don't think they still test F-22 avionics
on it, but rather fly it around as an experimental jet owned by Boeing.
Thanks for posting.
BTW, did you catch a climpse of the tail numbers the RAAF AEW&C aircraft?
They had to put bigger generators on the engines because that big microwave on the top needs to much power (you can see the bump on the engines).
Given the price of the thing, 400 mil +, I'm surprised they let us that close... With Vigilare and all its associated systems, and the Super Hornet
purhase this is a MASSIVE increase in RAAF capability...
