F-35A Lightning II aircraft divert training into RAAF Base Darwin

Royal Australian Air Force F-35A Lightning II pilots from No. 75 Squadron will conduct diversion training into RAAF Base Darwin.

RAAF Base Darwin is a divert airfield for F-35A aircraft based at RAAF Base Tindal.

Diversion training is an essential part of training on fast jet aircraft to enable pilots to land at different airfields.

Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military flying and Air Force appreciates the ongoing support of the Darwin community during these training activities.

Further information about the F-35A Lightning II can be found on our Technology page.
