A full-scale F-35 Joint Strike Fighter model is perched atop a pedestal overlooking a rural valley in central New York. Engineers from the Air Force Research Laboratory's antenna research and measurement facility here are testing the aircraft's sophisticated antenna. The model weighs 8,500 pounds and has the capability to simulate all three variants of the fighter. [Courtesy photo]
