On April 15, 2017 6 Lockheed F-35As from the 344th FS/388th FW based at Hill AFB, Utah landed at RAF Lakenheath. This was the first operational deployment for USAF F-35As and crossing the Atlantic was made possible by air-refueling provided by Air Mobility Command and the RAF 100th Air Refueling Wing that combined off-loaded 400,000 pounds of fuel. F-35A 14-5097 was one of the 6 aircraft and used call sign “Atlas 23”.  These F-35As will remain in Europe for several weeks to conduct air training with other units.
