The F-35 live fire test team completed the final shot on F-35B BG-1, a non-flying full-scale STOVL variant built for static ground tests. The live fire testing began on 1 May 2014 (but photographed here on September 9, 2014) and consisted of a series of fifteen shots directed at various positions on the airframe. The effort was led by Naval Air Systems Command’s Weapons Survivability Laboratory at China Lake, California. [Lockheed Martin Photo]
