It's ours! F-35 Lightning lands in Montgomery

"Montgomery’s 187th Fighter Wing was selected after being one of the five Air National Guard sites to be considered for the new F-35 Lightning II jet — the newest, technologically advanced fighter in the nation’s military arsenal — to replace their retiring aircraft."

The AL Air Guard has been doing a lot of deployments, so maybe it seemed like a good move Total Force and all that.
