F-35 Lightning II
Overview: The F-35, designated "Lightning II," is a
single-seat, single-engine stealth-capable multi-role
fighter. There are three models: conventional
takeoff and landings, a vertical takeoff and landing
variant and a carrier model. One of the most
notable features is its development as a
multinational effort. Funded mainly by the United
States, other partners are the United Kingdom,
Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Turkey, Norway and
Denmark.

Corridor connections: Eglin Air Force Base will
become home to the Joint Strike Fighter training
center.
