US F-35As at Nellis AFB for Red Flag 20-1

Pilots and maintainers in the 421st Fighter Squadron " Widows" launch and fly the F-35A Lightning II in their first Red Flag together. The exercise, from Jan. 27-Feb. 15, is meant to give at least 10 combat-representative sorties to younger pilots to better prepare them for real combat against very capable adversaries. The 421st Fighter Squadron is the most recent squadron to transition to the F-35A in the 388th Fighter Wing.
