More from 'How Blue is your flag'? FOUR PAGE PDF of ARTICLE now Attached below. Combat Aircraft February 2020 "This shot illustrates the various participants, from USAF F-16CMs and Italian and Israeli F-35s, to the F-15A Baz. Amit Agronov"
F-35 AT ‘BLUE FLAG’
"This marked the first time the F-35I Adir participated in ‘Blue Flag’. Lt Col ‘T’, who commands 140 ‘Golden Eagle’ Squadron at Nevatim, said, ‘So far our training and co-operation using the ‘Adir’ has been within the [Israeli Air] Force.’ The F-35s flew with radar/reflecting Luneburg lenses, but according to Lt Col Herman: ‘Certain profiles of missions and rules of engagement involved the F-35 being immune to certain ground-to-air threats.’ This probably reflected how a ‘cloaked’ F-35 would be able to work around such threat systems. Lt Col ‘T’ also commented on working with the Italian Lightnings: ‘Our ability to sit together, brief, debrief and exchange information allowed us to take a step forward in our work, and see how each side does things differently while optimizing use of the aircraft’s capabilities.’"
