The first Lockheed Martin F-35C c/n CF-01 completed its maiden flight on June 6, 2010 and lasted fifty seven minutes. On November 6, 2010, wearing a hi-vis paint scheme tail the aircraft was delivered to the USN VX-23 "Salty Dogs" Air Test and Evaluation Squadron at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland. VX-23 was established in 1995 and operates several types of aircraft. On average VX-23 conducts 3,000 flights annually accumulating about 4,000 flight hours with a large portion of this time spent conducting high-risk flight tests.

Lockheed F-35C Lightning II

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.
