Flying the F-35B
Four of the RAF’s new F-35B jets have returned to the UK after a two-month exercise in Cyprus. During their time on the island, the Lightnings flew their first operational missions over Iraq and Syria. Just before they left Akrotiri, Simon Newton spoke to the Wing Commander John Butcher, the officer in charge of 617 Squadron, about what it is like to fly the world’s most advanced warplane.
