Lockheed Martin F-35A Performs Flight Demonstration at Paris Air Show 2017

Before the opening of the 2017 Paris Air Show, Lockheed Martin senior experimental test pilot Billie Flynn validated the F-35A Lightning II flying display for show officials, providing an early opportunity to see it in action.

This is the F-35A model, which is flown by the United States Air Force, and it is the first time it has appeared at the Paris Air Show. Last year, the STOVL-capable F-35B variant made its international airshow debut at the Farnborough Air Show. This F-35A display shows an expanded envelope of the aircraft’s capabilities over the last display.
