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.
