MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan -- Lockheed Martin hosted an F-35 Lightning II cockpit demonstration simulation Sept. 24 through 26 at Misawa Air Base, Japan.

The demonstration was brought to Misawa in order to increase awareness of the new aircraft and to become familiar with the multi-role fighter that will ultimately be the mainstay aircraft of the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and allied nations.

"The F-35 is going to be everywhere in the world," said Paul DuLaney, F-35 project manager for Lockheed Martin and former Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon pilot. "We're introducing it to Airmen here, so everyone can understand just how important it will be to the mission."
