(AFNS) -- The April issue of Airman magazine is now available to download and is viewable through a Web browser. Featured on our cover, “The perfect storm” gives a birds-eye view of the F-35 Lightning II as it goes through rigorous testing and evaluation in order to be declared initial operational capability within the projected deadline later this year. Next, we follow a maintainer and his jet from the battlefield to the boneyard in “Struck by the Thunderbolt.” In our final feature, the past mingles with the present during a heritage flight experience at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona.
