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.
With so many unanswered F-35 Lightning II questions that a computer simulation couldn’t solve it was deemed necessary to build two full-scale models. These fiberglass and aluminum models were completed two years before the first test F-35 flew. Since stealth was the key factor to the F-35’s construction it was necessary to test the aircraft’s antennae in different locations and varying angles. The F-35C model painted similar to the VF-103 Jolly Rogers was placed high on a pole to test if the larger wings and slight airframe difference would impact the antennas.
