Interestingly, RIAT mentions that the F-35 will make it's international debut at Fairford... So no F-35 @ Leeuwarden?
F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter Confirmed!
Aviation history will be made this summer when the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, the Joint Strike Fighter makes its international display debut at the Air Tattoo.
This will include the F-35B short take-off/vertical landing version, demonstrating the Harrier-like 'hover' required for operation from austere land-bases and aircraft carriers.
Visitors to the Air Tattoo will be the first outside of the United States to see the aircraft's state-of-the-art capabilities when it displays on all three days, July 8-10. Read the full F-35 story HERE.

Airshow is not a priority, according to RNLAF chief of fighter operations. See http://airheadsfly.com/2016/01/26/dutch ... g-testers/
Answers will be questioned.....

Bijklomend voordeel is dat de nieuwste aanwinst van defensie op de luchtmachtdagen op 10 en 11 juni aan het grote publiek getoond kan worden.
article in dutch, it's about an interview with the basecommander of LWD; http://www.omropfryslan.nl/nieuws/de-gr ... I.facebook

Looks like a confirmation to me about the F35 attending the open days!
