USAF F-35As Deployed in Bulgaria 2 May, 2017

Two US F-35 Lightning II aircraft and about 20 supporting airmen arrived in Bulgaria this week from Royal Air Force Lakenheath, England, as part of a deployment that will provide pilots the opportunity to engage in familiarization training within Europe. The F-35As are participating in the first training deployment to Europe.

This long-planned deployment will bolster the US commitment to security and stability throughout Europe, the United States European Command (Eucom) officials said.
