An F-35B Lightning II aircraft, ZM143 from 617 squadron made a debut visit to RNAS Culdrose "The Home of Carrier Aviation" on the 14/11/2018. A quick drive from Helston and I managed to get myself in position to record the event in time. This was the first flight where an F-35B had graced the skies above RNAS Culdrose and it looked like many of the base personell took time out to witness the F-35B in circuit around the base. On the first approach the aircraft did an orbit/recce of the airfield then carried out two approaches prior to returning to RAF Marham. The F-35B Lightning II is currently embarked for trials on HMS Queen Elizabeth the Royal Navy's newest aircraft carrier.
