Great shots.

BK-08 is almost certainly the airframe c/n (I have ZM139 as BK-05 so logical sequence).

Happy New Year Ben. Nice pics Dave, but agree with Paddy. I know looks can be deceptive but.......... I hope it flies and fights better than it looks. Good job it can't reproduce......

thanks for the kind words ......

I agree that the F-35 will win the ugly duckling in "looks" unfortunately, we are heading to the world of not so pretty jets!!!

:Oops:

BK08 have been delievered last I check! last week have been all F-35A from Lockheed martin including the Japanese and Isrealis!
