From virtual to reality: F-35A, B-2 conduct joint training mission
A U.S. Air Force F-35A Lightning II assigned to the 63rd Fighter Squadron takes off, Nov. 18, 2020, at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona. Ten F-35s from Luke AFB participated in a joint exercise with two B-2 Spirits from Whiteman AFB, Missouri. During the exercise, F-35s pressured enemy air defenses, escorted the bombers to deter enemy aircraft, and dropped bombs to soften the target areas for the B-2s. The 63rd FS, which trains students to become F-35 pilots, usually uses simulations to conduct this training, but had the opportunity to train students in a real world environment instead.
