First Lt. Joshua Shook, 63rd Fighter Squadron F-35A Lightning II pilot, performs a pre-flight inspection July 22, 2020, at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz. The 63rd FS implemented the Beast Mode weapons configuration on their F-35s during training sorties to better prepare B-Course student pilots with experience needed for combat. The implementation of the maximum strike weapons configuration is one of many ways the 56th Fighter Wing is training the world’s greatest fighter pilots and combat ready Airmen.
