Hello everyone, and welcome to the October 15th issue of Nellis AFB / Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! The F-35A continued its progress toward nuclear design certification, with the release of two B61-12 JTAs from operationally realistic flight envelopes over the Tonopah Test Range. “The B-2 bomber was the prominent nuclear capable stealth aircraft,” said Jackson. “Adding ‘nuclear capable’ to a 5th-Gen fighter that already brings several conventional-level capabilities to the table adds strategic-level implication to this Jet.” A very interesting story – and we have it, along with much more news, in this week’s edition of Desert Lightning News.
