Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II combat aircraft of Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 211 ‘The Wake Island Avengers’ arrived in the United Kingdom on 27 April, ahead of their upcoming deployment on Carrier Strike Group 21 (CSG21).

The US Marine Corps (USMC) jets landed at Royal Air Force (RAF) Lakenheath ahead of training that will culminate in the unit joining UK F-35Bs aboard HMS Queen Elizabeth for the ship’s inaugural operational cruise in late May.
