F-35 Achieves a Milestone, Delivers 200th Operational Jet
 
The F-35 Lightning II programme has delivered the 200th operational jet to the Japan Air Self-Defense Force. The 200th jet’s second delivery to Japan first departed at Lockheed Martin’s Fort Worth production facility in Texas and then about two hours later it arrived at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona.

The jet will join Luke’s F-35 fleet of 46 jets which Japan uses to train its pilot. The F-35 programme continues to grow and accelerate as it now operates in 12 locations worldwide including Israel and Italy. The programme has also logged 75,000 flight hours while training more than 380 pilots and 3,700 maintainers.
