Dutch F-35s land in the Netherlands

One of two Royal Netherlands Air Force F-35As taxis after landing at Leeuwarden Air Base in the Netherlands, which is one of two bases that will be home to the RNLAF's F-35s when they arrive permanently in 2019. The RNLAF plans to replace its legacy F-16A/B fleet with a minimum of 37 F-35s, split between two bases. The Dutch component of the F-35 Joint Operational Test Team will conduct test sorties and introduce their fifth-generation fighter to the Netherlands people. The two Dutch F-35s landed May 23 in the Netherlands after departing Edwards AFB May 21. They plan to return to Edwards in around three weeks. (Royal Netherlands Air Force image)
