F-35s forward deploy to Bulgaria
A U.S. Air Force F-35A Lightning II aircraft assigned to Hill Air Force Base, Utah, prepares to be refueled by a KC-135 Stratotanker, from the 459th Air Refueling Wing, during a flight to Graf Ignatievo Air Base, Bulgaria, April 28, 2017. Eight F-35s deployed to Royal Air Force Lakenheath, England, on April 15 and two forward deployed to Bulgaria for a brief time which allowed the F-35s to engage in familiarization training within the European theater while reassuring allies and partners of U.S. dedication to the enduring peace and stability of the region.
