Interesting thing is, those are F-35B's which I don't believe Israel is going to be buying.  Given the size of their country, though, dispersed F-35B's would make sense for them (does suggest surplus Harriers being similarly used).

There has been some talk of Israel getting some Bs though nothing has been confirmed to date.  Singapore is another to also look at Bs.

Israeli Bs - F-35IBs? - sound very cool, and that camo is spectacular. Maybe I need to add another to my shopping list.

I'm not a fan of lo-viz schemes today but the RAAF F-35s look fantastic. I'm a big fan and very envious of my neighbours across The Ditch.

Yeah, Rainbow Canyon aka Star Wars Canyon in Death Valley, it's been used for high-speed
flight training and aircraft testing since WWII.

Edwards AFB, Nellis AFB, NAS LeMoore, MCAS Miramar, Fresno ANG, Plant 42 (Palmdale), and various
testing outfits use it today.

Both pictures taken at Fort Worth?  I believe I recognize the area in the background of the top one and I doubt you would find a F-16 flying chase in Australia.
