Lockheed's second F-35A AU-2 (RAAF serial A35-002) completed a maiden flight on October 1 2014. The RAAF took possession shortly after and early in 2015 the aircraft was flown Luke AFB, Arizona to become part of the training team. The complete acquisition of 72 RAAF F-35As is supposed to be completed between 2017 and 2022. A35-001 and A35-002 made a first time appearance in Australia on March 3, 2017 to take part in the Avalon Air Show before returning to Luke AFB five days later.

Lockheed F-35A Lightning II JSF

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.
