No Plan for F-35 to RIAT and Paris Airshow this year

According to defensenews.com there won’t be F-35 Lightning II display in Europe in this year:

The F-35 will sit out the Paris Air Show this June, the joint program office confirmed Tuesday.  A spokesman for the F-35 Joint Program Office told Defense News that —  to his knowledge — the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps had not been invited to bring the F-35 to the Paris Air Show this year, and as such the JPO is not planning on making an appearance. The news was first reported by Aviation Week. Although the U.S. government won’t be showing off the F-35, Lockheed Martin almost certainly will make the aircraft a focal point of its marketing during the Paris Air Show.
