FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 31, 2011 – Two Lockheed Martin F-35As, AF-10 and AF-11, along with two F-16 chase aircraft, are poised for takeoff to Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., Wednesday morning.
F-35A production aircraft AF-11 takes off from Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base, Texas, for delivery to Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., on Aug. 31, 2011.
     
They officially arrived at the base at 1:19 p.m. CDT today. On Friday, the F-35 Joint Program Office authorized a return to flight operations for F-35 production aircraft. AF-10 and AF-11 completed the 90-minute flight marking the ninth and tenth F-35 contractual deliveries of 2011.

The pair of conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) jets will be used for training pilots and maintainers at the new F-35 Integrated Training Center there.
