After a long wait Luke Air Force Base recently welcomed their first F-35. The F-35 is the next generation of planes the Air force hopes to build on for years to come. After the failure of the F-22 and the halt of it’s production on December 13, 2011 the F-35 has been the focal point of development for the U.S. Air force.
