USAF F 35 LN 640First F-35 arrival at Lakenheath

Earlier Scramble Magazine wrote about Lakenheath's first F-35As arriving, setting multiple milestones.

Scramble can now confirm that the first F-35 arrival at RAF Lakenheath (UK) will be on 15 December 2021. It is expected that on this day three or four Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning IIs, destined for the 495th Fighter Squadron, will be flying from the Continental United States (CONUS) towards Lakenheath.
