Australia has recently accepted its latest delivery of F-35s – the fifth-generation fighter that represents the biggest upgrade in RAAF’s capability in a generation.

In this special episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, Lockheed Martin Australia’s Andy Doyle tells host Adam Thorn how they onboarded the platform to the country.

The pair discuss what makes the aircraft so special, the scale of the program globally and how pilots, engineers and support staff were selected and trained to help with the transition.


Finally, they also chat about keeping the F-35 program going during two challenging years of COVID.
