From my visit to Eglin AFB and the F-35C Lightning II .
Impressive, but I would like my fighter to have 2 engines.
I got up close and personal with the jet, the maintenance officer gave me a tour of the base and plane that very few have the privilege of seeing.

I had a beer in the Officers bar and currently waiting for my beer mug from the RAGMO (Replacement Air Group Maintenance Officer.
