An F-35C First

Several days ago, while the F-35B continues to undergo at sea tests aboard USS Wasp, other F-35 developments were happening elsewhere. Pictured above, CF-1, an F-35C, performed the type’s first inflight refuel from an Air Force KC-135. Now that VFA-101, the US Navy’s training squadron, is beginning operations, I look forward to good news in the future.
