Seems the Canadian purchase is now back on ----- so buying this below years ago wasn't just wishful thinking   ;)
If Canada holds off on the F-35 acquisition for a couple of more years they might get a great deal on a fleet of second hand Australian F-35s when the RAAF upgrades to the next version of the F-35 or its replacement...

Despite the ADF arming up, it will be about 30yrs before there are any RAAF F-35 hand me downs.

Nice mug Robert. I hope we can get at least one for the RCAF 100 Year Anniversary in 2024.

Greg, can you pull some strings here?

Where would you get one from, like I said, I bought it years ago.

I'm sure Greg could organise an F-35 mug for the RCAF for its Centenary, he may even be generous enough to source a case of them by 2024. ;D

There are options (see here for example) though I am not sure about that exact one.

Can anyone tell me what the "official" designation for the F-35 is, in RAF/RN service? Is it like Lightning II F (A).1 or FRS.1

Thanks Greg, so it doesn't have a British designation, just F-35B
