AF-1 and AF-2, two F-35A test aircraft, flew nonstop from Lockheed Martin's aircraft plant in Fort Worth, Tex., to Edwards AFB, Calif., May 17, 2010. According to Lockheed, this was the historic first multi-ship, long-range flight in the F-35's history. Their arrival signaled the expansion of F-35 flight test operations at Edwards, which is building up a test fleet of at least eight F-35s. Here, AF-1 and AF-2 fly side-by-side during a flight near Fort Worth, Tex., May 11, 2010.
