Marine Corps F-35 Pair to Fly at Farnborough Airshow

F-35A pair of U.S. Marine Corps F-35 fighter jets will perform at the week-long Farnborough International Airshow and conduct practice runs for the Royal International Air Tattoo, Defense News reported Tuesday.

Valerie Insinna writes two F-35B units have completed validation flights with the U.K. government on Tuesday where the fighter jets flew from RAF Fairford to Farnborough and back within 20 minutes.

The U.S. Air Force‘s F-35As — that will fly only at RIAT — have also conducted its own flight validation operations at Langley Air Force Base, the report added.

Defense News added a set of F-22 and P-51 Warbird units will join the heritage flight alongside the F-35As during the event.
