Turkish pilot carries out first F-35 jet flight
A Turkish fighter pilot has carried out the first flight of the F-35 jet as part of ongoing training in the U.S., the Turkish General Staff said.
Early July, the Pentagon said Turkish pilots and maintenance personnel were being trained on the F-35 fighter jet in the state of Arizona.
Late June, Turkey took delivery of its first F-35 fighter jet at a ceremony in Forth Worth, Texas.
Turkey plans to get 100 F-35 fighter jets in upcoming years, Hurriyet Daily recalls.
