An F-35A aircraft for the Royal Norwegian Air Force was flown for the first time on 6 October 2015. Lockheed Martin test pilot Bill Gigliotti was at the controls during the flight, which occurred at the Lockheed Martin facility at NAS Fort Worth JRB, Texas. The aircraft, internally designated AM-2 (RoNAF serial number 5088), is scheduled to be flown to Luke AFB, Arizona, later this year for pilot training.
