The first of three developmental Lockheed F-35Bs for the RAF was completed in November 2011 with the first flight on April 13, 2012. These three aircraft have been delivered for evaluation and designated BK-01, BK-02 and BK-03 with each aircraft assigned the RAF serial of ZM135, ZM136 and ZM137 respectively. These RAF serials are being used to resemble the original Lightning F.1 serials used in the 1960s. The only difference is the first Lighting F.1 was XM134 but since it crashed a year later BK-01 was started at the second aircraft XM135 (ZM135).

Lockheed F-35B Lightning II JSF

Designed to meet the US Military's requirement for a multi-role Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006. This single-seat fighter is one of the most advanced aircraft of our time, said to be four times more effective at air-to-air combat and eight times more effective at air-to-ground combat than any other existing aircraft. It uses a low-maintenance stealth technology, and some versions have an innovative Lift System, which gives the F-35 vertical take-off and landing capabilities. The US plans to buy a total of 2,443 F-35s at a cost of $323 billion, which makes the F-35 the most expensive defense program in history.
