Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II

@Sacramento Mather Airport, Sacramento, CA

October 2016

Not one, but two F-35’s were on hand for this year’s California Capital Airshow.  First flown in 2006, after years of delays and cost overruns, on 2 August 2016 the U.S. Air Force declared the F-35A combat ready.  This aircraft is the 56th to be produced with a forecast total of 1,763 for the US Air Force.  Nikon D7100 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture.

  1. I like to see children looking all wide-eyed at these shows. I know it is a day they will never forget!
