Very large photos of BF-1 arriving at Pax. I won't preview them. You will just have to look at the links.

:lol:

Some very good photography by LM.

When is the F-35 going to be shooting and bombing stuff?

First F-22A flew in September of 1997. First F-22A AMRAAM launch was in October of 2000. First F-22A combat squadron was declared IOC in 2005.
First F-35 flew in December of 2006. First F-35 to launch anything? First F-35 IOC squadron... 2014?

Seems to me either the F-35 is going to be doing such soon or it is in for a delayed and rushed test period. Especially if the projected IOC dates are to be maintained.
