F-35C lands at NAS Oceana

An F-35C Lightning II, assigned to the "Grim Reapers" of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 101, completes its first landing at Oceana, providing Sailors a chance to learn more about the platform. The F-35 is a single seat, multi-role fighter aircraft designed to replace the F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8B Harrier. The aircraft was planned with a common design, but consists of three unique service variants capable of performing ground attack, reconnaissance and air defense missions. The F-35C is the carrier variant of the Lockheed Martin built aircraft. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Ernest R. Scott/Released)
