We write October 25th 2021 ; Exercise "FRISIAN LIGHTNING III"
Pilots and ground personnel of the Leeuwarder F-35 squadron will depart today to Edwards AFB, USA due to the huge distance between
the Netherlands and the USA they will make an intermediate stop for crew rest at Vermont AFB, USA. This is a so-called displacement exercise,
which lasts until week47 end October. Exercise "Frisian Lightning III" is part of a bigger plan.

The Air Force checks whether the squadron can provide sufficient people and resources in a short period of time. It must be able to deploy a
unit of 4 F-35s including personnel and equipment anywhere in the world. That is the so-called Initial Operational Capability (IOC) that should be
a fact by the end of October 2021.
