    Representatives of the countries partnering on the JSF program surround a scale model of the F-35 at the Paris Air Show on June 15. The delegates built the model on site, adding sections until it was completed. Each section displays the flag of one partner country. [LMTAS photo ]

    The F-35 Lightning II cockpit does away with most switches and gagues in favor of two 8"x10" advanced LCD touchscreens. With the addition of the Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) to the F-35 system, there is no need for a conventional Heads Up Display (HUD) on the glare shield in the cockpit. [LMTAS photo]

    Constructed of lightweight composites, the new Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) does away with the traditional Heads Up Display (HUD) mounted on the aircraft glare shield and allows the pilot to see relavent symbology even when looking off centerline. [LMTAS photo]

    Tim Wright, an ATA craftsman, examines a Short Takeoff/Vertical Landing (STOVL) F-35 model in the 16-foot transonic wind tunnel during a model change. The information from this testing, the final entry in a series of tests, will go into a large database to refine and validate the aircraft designs for flight testing and ultimately, production of the CTOL and STOVL F-35 variants.

    The modified 737-300 known as the "CAT-Bird" is seen here over the Mojave desert on its maiden flight Jan. 23 2007. The aircraft develops and verifies the F-35's capability to collect data from multiple sensors and fuse it into a coherent situational awareness display in a dynamic airborne environment.
