The F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole fighters. The fighter's fifth-generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground attack and air superiority missions. Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Grim Reapers on May 1, 2012, the VF-101 was reactivated and redesignated as Strike Fighter Squadron 101 (VFA-101), serving as a U.S. Navy Fleet Replacement Squadron, this time flying with the F-35C Lightning II - and serving the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps from the flight decks of aircraft carriers.
This 1/72 scale, die cast model features a well-equipped cockpit, glazed canopy, display stand, and authentic markings of the VFA-101 F-35C Lightning that served at the Eglin Air Force. 8½" long.
