The Legacy Continues
Less than two months after this capstone exercise, the Air Force has declared F-35 Initial Operational Capability. The years, moments and milestones leading to IOC have been filled with challenges, collaboration and a commitment to excellence. The Air Force now has the capability to deploy the F-35 – the world’s most advanced multi-role fighter jet – whenever and wherever it is called upon. For the brave Airmen who will fly and maintain the F-35 in combat, dominate the skies, and safeguard our freedom – the legacy of excellence continues.
