At around 8pm on June 6, a quartet of Lockheed F-35B Lightnings touched down at their new home, RAF Marham in Norfolk.  The jets are assigned to the newly re-formed 617 Sqn and had flown in from Beaufort USMC air station in South Carolina, where Britain has more of the fighters and 150 personnel in training.  The four new arrivals are serial numbers ZM145, ZM146, ZM147 and ZM148.

The full story will appear in the July issue of Aviation News, on sale in the UK on June 21.
