Here’s the Royal Norwegian Air Force F-35A.

The following images show the F-35A AM-1 5087, the first Royal Norwegian Air Force Lightning II aircraft during some of the first test flights it conducted in October from Lockheed Martin’s Fort Worth facilities.

The aircraft was rolled out on Sept. 22 and along with other 51 F-35s it is expected to replace the Royal Norwegian Air Force ageing F-16s.
