Royal Air Force F-35 Lightning aircraft from 617 Squadron ‘The Dambusters’ have arrived in Italy to conduct bilateral training with their Aeronautica Militare counterparts.
Two F-35 aircraft will operate from the Italian airbase in Amendola, having arrived after the successful conclusion of Exercise Lightning Dawn in Cyprus; the four other aircraft from the Cyprus deployment landed safely back at RAF Marham on July 2. Amendola is home to 32 Stormo of the Italian Air Force, which also operates the F-35.
