Singapore Air Force officials watched the demonstration of a new U.S. fighter at the Luke Air Force Base in Arizona, Military Times reported Tuesday.
Officers at the Air Force base said the F-35B flew from the Marine Corps Air Station Yuma to a pilot-training base west of Phoenix Tuesday and conducted some runway approaches to hover and then land, the report said.
Singapore officials are in the country to witness F-35 training exercises at Luke Air Force Base and the southwestern Arizona-based Barry M. Goldwater Range, according to the report.
Military Times reports the Asian country is considering buying the fighter plane.
The F-35B is designed as a single-engine short takeoff and vertical landing model of the Marine Corps’ F-35.
