The second Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II for the Netherlands rolled out of the F-35 production facility on March 2.
This is the latest step in the production process leading to its eventual assignment to Eglin AFB, Fla., later this summer.
The Netherlands is planning to use this conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) jet, known as AN-2, for training and operational tests for pilots and maintainers.
AN-2 will undergo functional fuel system checks before being transported to the flight line for ground and flight tests later this year.
