Marine Corps F-35Bs train with Japanese F-35A fighters for first time
10 May 2018 JAMES BOLINGER

"MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan — Eight Marine Corps F-35B Lighting II stealth fighters are training alongside Japanese F-35As for the first time in northern Japan. The Aviation Training Relocation, which kicked off Thursday and runs through May 22 at Misawa Air Base, also features four Misawa-based F-2 fighters, four Japan Air Self-Defense Force F-15s from Chitose Air Base and one AWAC from the Airborne Warning and Control Group at Hamamatsu Air Base, local media reported. This year marks the first time the MCAS Iwakuni-based fifth-generation F-35B has been involved in the annual training, which has been taking place since 1997.

The aircraft will conduct combat drills involving air-to-ground bombing, the reports said. They will also practice shooting and bombing a ground target at the Misawa Air-to-Ground Firing Practice Range.
