An F-35 Lightning II was loaded into a C-17 Globemaster by 96th Logistics Readiness Squadron aerial porters recently at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla.
Tech. Sgt. Allen Fanter, from the 388th Maintenance Group, helped coordinate the movement. This was the first-ever F-35 wing removal and shipment via air transport. The $200,000 four-year project culminated in the transport of the aircraft to Hill's Ogden Air Logistics Complex. There it will become the Air Force’s first F-35 aircraft battle damage trainer.
