The Marine Corps recently selected six pilots to become some of the first instructors for the Marine version of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. The Marines will travel to Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., where the training detachment for the F-35B will be located, by the end of this year or beginning of next. The three variants of the JSF are the Air Force F-35A, Navy F-35C and Marine Corps F-35B. (Source: Desert Warrior, 01/15/09)
