US Marine Corps Lt. Col. Matt Kelly flew F-35B BF-2 to its new, but temporary, home at the F-35 Integrated Test Force at Edwards AFB, California, on 23 July 2012 after a cross country flight from NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. The Marine Corps short takeoff/vertical landing test jet is on the west coast for aircraft airstart testing over the Edwards ranges. The US Air Force shortened the name of the main tenant unit at Edwards from Air Force Flight Test Center to just Air Force Test Center in July 2012.
