The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is an American family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole combat aircraft that is intended to perform both air superiority and strike missions. It is also able to provide electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities. Lockheed Martin is the prime F-35 contractor, with principal partners Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems. The aircraft has three main variants: the conventional takeoff and landing F-35A (CTOL), the short take-off and vertical-landing F-35B (STOVL), and the carrier-based F-35C (CV/CATOBAR). Primary Role: Stealth Multirole Fighter.
The first four USAF F-35A Lightning IIs arrived at RAF Lakenheath on December 15, 2021. These aircraft were 19-5473, 74, 75 and 76 with 3 more F-35As arriving two months later to the 48th FW ˘The Statue of Liberty Wing÷. After some debate over a name for the 495th FS, in mid February the name ˘Valkyries÷ was chosen. ˘Valkyries÷ were Norse mythology female figures who decided who lived or die in battle. The 495th FS motto: 'Mala Ipsa Nova' means 'Bad News Itself' along with ˘Valkyries÷ is a very menacing combination.
