In July 2019 RAF 207 (OCU) Squadron was reformed at RAF Marham after six years of training at MCAS Beaufort, SC where they learned about the new Lockheed Martin F-35B, technical data as well as the flight capabilities of the aircraft. Lockheed Martin F-35B s/n 169598 was received by the RAF in October 2018 and assigned ZM151. On November 16, 2018 the aircraft was sent to RAF Marham 617 Squadron “Dambusters” before going to 207 (OCU) Squadron in July 2019 where it will be used to train new F-35B pilots.

The Lockheed F-35 Lightning II is a fifth generation multi-role fighter aircraft that combines radar evading stealth technology with supersonic speed and extreme agility. The three variants of the Lightning II are the F-35A, B, and C. The F-35A is the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant. It features two internal weapons bays and six external hardpoints for mounting a variety of weapons under the wings plus an internal 25 mm cannon. The F-35B is the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant while the F-35C is the aircraft carrier-based variant. The F-35 was developed to replace the U.S Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon, U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet and the U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8 Harrier II.

The F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006 and is scheduled to enter operational service in the coming years with the United States military and the air forces of several other nations that were partners in the development of the aircraft.
