Yesterday, Lockheed Martin F-35 IIs from the Dambusters squadron landed on the decks of HMS Elizabeth. This marks the 1st time that the Dambusters, also called 617 Squadron, has fully joined HMS Elizabeth, as the UK is preparing to deploy the next generation squadron of fighter aircraft. There are 3 versions of the Lockheed Martin F-35 II: the F-35A (conventional takeoff and landing), the F-35B (short takeoff and vertical landing) and the F-35C (carrier aircraft). The F-35 series possesses all the latest technology, making the pilot’s job more and more easy. 24th of June 2020.
