RNoAF anniversary F-35A explained
Feb 2020 Morten Hanche AFM Mag'n

"I just read your report on the Royal Norwegian Air Force’s (RNoAF’s) specially marked F-35A at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona – serial 5146 (AM-06, FMS 15-5146) – see Anniversary markings for Norwegian F-35A, December 2019, p14). While Litago is in fact a popular brand of chocolate-flavoured milk in Norway, it’s also an old-fashioned name for a cow. I think the actual reason for the name being applied to this jet dates back to World War Two, when 332 Squadron, based in the UK, operated a Spitfire with this name (flown by Johan Kristoffer Bjørn Ræder). Morten Hanche"

Cool markings! Fighter jets and chocolate, what an awesome combination. Here's to another 75 years.
