F-35Cs to use Meridian OLF

Navy and Marine F-35C pilots training at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., are expected to start two weeks of practice carrier-landing training Aug. 6 at the Naval Air Station Meridian’s Outlying Field Joe Williams in Kemper County. The F-35C pilots will be conducting the practices during daylight hours. The F-35C is a long-range stealth strike fighter built with larger wing surfaces and reinforced landing gear designed for carrier operations. (Source: Meridian Star, 08/03/16)
