A series to celebrate the 100 year history of the RAF
The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole fighters. The fifth-generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground-attack and air-superiority missions. It has three main models: the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant, the F-35B short take-off and vertical-landing (STOVL) variant, and the F-35C carrier-based catapult-assisted take-off but arrested recovery (CATOBAR) variant. The F-35 descends from the Lockheed Martin X-35, the winning design of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. It is built by Lockheed and many subcontractors, including Northrop Grumman, Pratt & Whitney, and BAE Systems.
The Royal Air Force was founded on the 1st April 1918 and is the oldest independent air force in the world.
Since the RAF’s formation this service has played a significant roll in the defence of the United Kingdom and British military history.
The RAF played a pivotal role in the defence of the country in the Second World War when it took part in its most famous campaign ‘The Battle of Britain’ without the RAF the outcome of the war could have been very different.
Some of the most iconic aircraft were developed and commissioned during the war years from the Spitfire to the Lancaster Bomber. At the same time developments in many other innovations and ideas were developed for example radar.
