A bit of a milestone for the program:
Assembly of the 100th Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is well underway at the F-35 production facility in Fort Worth, Texas.
F-35 technicians are in the final phase of building the wings that will be installed on the 100th aircraft known as AF-41. AF-41, a conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant, is one of more than 89 F-35s in various stages of completion on Lockheed Martin production lines in Fort Worth and Marietta, and supplier locations across the world.
The jet will be delivered to the U.S. Air Force and is slated for pilot training at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz.
