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

Some very good photography by LM.

If certain unmentionable rumors is true then we'll get a less than great update soon.

Nothing other than that BF-1 has missed all its scheduled flights so far.

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.

As in it will be used for target practice? Possibly, with both gun fire and missiles???
