Lockheed delivers on the F35

2012 was a busy year for the F35.

A total of 30 fighters were delivered to military officials at various locations all over the country, Lockheed Martin officials announced Thursday.

Here's the breakdown:

A total of 15 aircraft were assigned to Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. in support of training operations;

four aircraft were assigned to Marine Corps Air Station, Yuma, Ariz. in support of the Marine Corps' first operational squadron;

six aircraft were assigned to Edwards AFB in support of developmental flight testing and operational test and evaluation;

four aircraft were assigned to Nellis AFB Nev., in support of the development of F35 fighter tactics;

and one CF-5 was ferried to the Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, MD. earlier this month where it will support flight test operations in 2013.
