First Dutch F-35 pilot takes to skies

The first Netherlands pilot took to the skies in the F-35A Lightning II, making the Netherlands the second partner country to operate the fifth-generation multirole fighter.
The Netherlands currently has two aircraft stationed in Eglin AFB where they will continue to train pilots for operational testing and evaluation of the aircraft starting 2015. The Netherlands' aircraft and personnel are incorporated into the U.S. Air Force's 58th Fighter Squadron at the 33rd Fighter Wing.
