F-35s forward deploy to Bulgaria
A U.S. Air Force F-35A Lightning II touches down at Graf Ignatievo Air Base, Bulgaria, April 28, 2017, marking the first time the NATO country has hosted the fifth-generation fighter aircraft. Eight F-35s deployed from Hill Air Force Base, Utah, to Royal Air Force Lakenheath, England, on April 15. Two of the eight 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.
