Two F-35 Lightning IIs from Luke AFB will perform the flyover of Sunday’s NASCAR race (3/13/16) from Phoenix International Raceway. The race, which can be viewed on your local FOX affiliate around 3:30 pm Eastern, is not far from the base. Time on target is 3:32:30 exactly and the jets will fly from turn 4 to turn 1!
This isn’t the first time F-35s from Luke have performed flyovers. You may remember jets from Luke performed the flyover for the Pro-Bowl in January of 2015.
USAF F-35s will also be participating in 2016 Heritage Flights, flying alongside current USAF aircraft and historic fighters from previous conflicts. You can view the 2016 schedule for the F-35A Heritage Flights here!
