F-35C Carrier Version Makes First Flight

A couple of weeks back, Rear Adm. Mike Manazir, head of naval aviation programs, told reporters that the F-35C carrier variant of the Joint Strike Fighter would make its first flight in a "couple of weeks." Yesterday, CF-1 flew for the first time and Lockheed Martin posted some video for our viewing pleasure. “It should be in [Patuxent River] by the end of the summer and actively participating in flight tests” Manazir said.
