Apparently similar photos on DVIDS - this one via e-mail - I'll look for DVIDS content later [nice tail emblem on F-35B].

If you want to keep things in their threads, I would suggest you quote what you want and repost it in the thread you think it belongs. Then If seen, answers would have posted here. It's a bit funny doing and continuing the exchange till you are headbanging. Doing the same thing you are criticising others about on the Norway thread

They wanted the all singing all dancing STRIKE FIGHTER wot is F-35A. Nobody offered the F-22 to Australia. It was perhaps mentioned BUT NEVER OFFERED and Oz NEVER WANTED IT. I'll provide reference to go there:

That then is your opinion so here we are as I suggested. Any Questions? I spy with - my naval eye - an F-35B or two in Oz.
