1st Norwegian F-35A Rolls Out

The first F-35A Lightning II for Norway was towed out of the Lockheed Martin F-35 main production facility in Fort Worth, as on 19 August 2015. The aircraft (company number AM-1) is currently in the Aircraft Final Finishes, where it will receive its low observable coatings. From there it will undergo a series of functional fuel system checks prior to operational ground checks, and first flight. The aircraft will be delivered to Luke AFB, Arizona, later this year, where it will join the US Air Force’s F-35 international pilot training program fleet. AM-1 is the first of four F-35s for the Royal Norwegian Air Force currently in production.
