With so many unanswered F-35 Lightning II questions that a computer simulation couldn’t solve it was deemed necessary to build two full-scale models. These fiberglass and aluminum models were completed two years before the first test F-35 flew. Since stealth was the key factor to the F-35’s assembly it was necessary to test the aircrafts antennas in different locations and varying angles. The F-35C model painted similar to the VF-103 Jolly Rogers was placed high on a pole to test if the larger wings and slight airframe difference would impact the antennas.

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.
