The Lockheed Martin’s F-35A test crew is conducting testing on Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, to certify the aircraft’s ability to taxi and land on an icy runway.


F-35A Lightning II icy runway testing

An F-35A Lightning II helmet sits on a foam pad Nov. 4, 2017, at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. The F-35A Lightning II is a unique aircraft because it does not have a head-up display inside the cockpit. To accommodate for this change the helmet is an ultra-lightweight, state of the art piece of technology, which displays information on the visor of the pilot’s helmet.
