F-35B Arrives At Centcom Prior To First Combat Deployment

10 April 2018
ExecutiveGov reports that an F-35B arrived Wednesday at MacDill Air Force Base as part of a “two-day visit meant to inform US Central Command senior leaders on the short-takeoff/vertical-landing aircraft’s capacities and limitations before it enters theater operations.” The Lockheed Martin-built aircraft is planned for deployment aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Essex “to complement the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s air capabilities and support operations within Centcom’s area of responsibility, the US Marine Corps said Friday.” (Image Credit: U.S. Navy via Wikimedia Commons)
