Featured on the cover, "The perfect storm" gives a birds-eye view of the F-35 Lightning II as it goes through rigorous testing and evaluation in order to be declared initial operational capability within the projected deadline later this year.

Next, follow a maintainer and his jet from the battlefield to the boneyard in "Struck by the Thunderbolt."

In the final feature, the past mingles with the present during a heritage flight experience at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona.
