With just two weeks left until our Centenary, we've reached number two in our countdown of our most iconic aircraft.
This one's definitely an instant icon: the Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II
The F-35A Lightning II is our fifth-generation multi-role fighter that – in conjunction with the F/A-18F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler – is the backbone of Australia’s air combat capability. It incorporates comprehensive stealth technology, electronic protection and attack, and advanced countermeasures.
Its fused, multi-spectral sensors and advanced networking capabilities provide an unprecedented level of situation awareness. With only one week to go, which aircraft do you think is at the top of our list?
