AF-2, nicknamed the 'Workhorse', is the second production F-35 Lightning II for the U.S. Air Force and the first F-35 to reach 1,000 flight hours. Every AF-2 flight-test hour continues to advance the F-35's Flight Sciences testing.

    First flight of the F-35 was 15 December 2006. 8 years later and it hits 1000 hours ???

    That may work out to half of an hour per day, but there are always bugs to work out of a new aircraft. And they are not flying everyday, either.
