RAF F-35B and U.S. Air Force F-35A jets flew to Amendola, Italy, to take part in joint missions with the local-based Italian Air Force F-35A jets.

On Jul. 2, 2019, Amendola Air Base, in southeastern Italy, home of the 13° Gruppo (Squadron) of the 32° Stormo (Wing), the first Italian Air Force unit equipped with the F-35 Lightning II stealth aircraft since 2016, hosted what has been unofficially dubbed an international F-35 training day, that saw the involvement of both the 617 Sqn “Dambusters” of the Royal Air Force, flying the F-35B STOVL (Short Take Off Vertical Landing) variant of the Joint Strike Fighter; and the 421st FS (Fighter Squadron) of the U.S. Air Force, the newest fighter squadron in the Air Force to stand up the F-35A about 6 months ago.
