Lockheed Martin F-35 C (test aircraft CF-1)
This image shows the first flight of the carrier-based variant armed with Sidewinders on the outer hard points. The test happened on 27 June out of Patuxent River AFB, Maryland.
The F-35C has larger control and wing surfaces, a reinforced landing gear and – ultimately – an arrester hook to enable operation from a conventional aircraft carrier. So far, the only customer for the F-35C is the U.S. Navy.
