F-35 Entering Service For The first Time

Well the time has come. The famed F-35 Lightning II is entering service for the first time in the history of aviation. I say, it's about time. 

Ten F-35's will be deployed at Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121 (VMFA-121) based at Yuma, Arizona.

We grow up hearing about it. And  it was a mystery why these aircraft are not yet in service. They were always going through design changes, budget overruns, schedule slips. But as we all know, great things can all be achieved by hard work and it will take time - otherwise everyone would have had it.   

It's been 14 years now. When the news first came out - that they are designing a "Stealth" aircraft that could take off vertically; it was bizarre! 

But when I saw the first vertical take off in Lockheed's website - I said to myself " She was the one".

The threatening condition of the world is filled with terrorism and mindless attacks. People who threatens peace. When a country spend trillions of dollars to fight for peace and serenity, they look out to a machine that can fly invisible and hit hard. Those machines can end war even before it begins. 

With F-35's entering the service we can be glad that elite soldiers will make sure of our peace and serenity. 

Until Next time.
