F35 fighter jets roar through Lancashire's skies

A pair of F35 fighter jets boomed through the skies over Lancashire on Tuesday (February 7).

The F-35s – the world's most advanced fighter aircraft – were an awesome sight as they thundered over rooftops in Preston, South Ribble, Chorley, Fylde and Wyre yesterday.

The fighters took to the skies to mark a special milestone at BAE Systems in Samlesbury, which celebrated delivering their 1,000th rear fuselage to US aerospace and defence giant Lockheed Martin.
