The F-35 Heritage Flight Team will start its season March 11-13, 2016, with a static display at Thunder and Lightning Over Arizona at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. The F-35 will support 14 air shows in 10 U.S. states, including a week-long appearance at The Royal International Air Tattoo in the United Kingdom.
