Second Line´s book draws on visits with pilots, maintainers, testers, industrialists and visits in Asia, Europe and the Middle East discussing the F-35 and how it is viewed by key states as part of their defence transformation.

The F-35 has more than 50,000 flight hours and an operational squadron with the Marines, and second shortly, to be joined by the USAF this year and the Navy next year, the F-35 fleet has already taken off.

Key partners are already rethinking how they will use the plane based on direct engagement in the development, production, training, flying or maintaining the aircraft today.
