Arizona’s Luke AFB awaiting arrival of its first F-35

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Luke Air Force Base expects to get its first F-35 in the
near future.

Officials said they don’t have a specific date but believe the arrival of
the new fighter could be as early as next week.

Luke is a pilot-training base that has been selected for F-35 training, while
operational units flying the F-35 will be located at other air bases.

Luke officials said they’ll hold a formal ceremony in mid-March to mark the
F-35’s arrival.
