First F-35 Lightning II
F-35A Lightning II joint strike fighter crew chief, Tech. Sgt. Brian West, watches his aircraft approach for the first time at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., July 14. The 33rd Fighter Wing provided air dominance with the F-15 Eagle for over 30 years, but their mission changed in early 2009. The Nomads were tapped to stand up the first F-35 Lightning II wing in the world. . (U.S. Air Force photo/Samuel King Jr.)
