Remaining F-35B Lightning II Aircraft with VMFA-121 Arrive at MCAS Iwakuni

11/16/2017

U.S. Marine Corps F-35B Lightning II aircraft with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 121 [landed] at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Iwakuni, Japan, on Nov. 9, 2017. 

The remaining aircraft represent the last installment of F-35B Lightning IIs assigned to VMFA-121. 

The F-35B Lightning II is a fifth-generation fighter, which is the world’s first operational supersonic short takeoff and vertical landing aircraft. 

The F-35B brings strategic agility, operational flexibility and tactical supremacy to III MEF with a mission radius greater than that of the F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8B Harrier II in support of the U.S. – Japan alliance.
