|Just a Single Finalist
The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) flight test program pitted the Lockheed Martin X-35 concept demonstrator against the Boeing X-32. After hundreds of hours of flight tests, in October 2001, the X-35 was chosen to become the progenitor of a fifth-generation strike/attack aircraft for the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, the Royal Air Force, and several other nations for many years to come. The X-35 is shown here completing its final flight tests near sunset at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland.
