Plans for a new US NAVY F-35 Demo Team

According to the rumor informations from we got to know that the US NAVY plans to make several demonstrations across the United States with the F/A-18F Super Hornets.

VFA-106 (NAS Oceana, Virginia) will perform full demonstrations while VFA-122 (NAS Lemoore, California) will fly Super Hornets in Legacy Flights. Both teams are expected to fly the two-seat F/A-18F model.

But its more interesting fact, that the US Navy is also planning to debut an F-35C Lightning II demonstration team in 2020. According to Airshowstuff “This team will be based at NAS Lemoore (flown by VFA-125) and while it will not do a full-up demo, it will get some extra passes beyond a regular Legacy Flight. This is a big step toward fielding a more complete demonstration with the Navy’s newest fighter jet.”

We can’t expect that this team will show up in Europe, its an extremely rare occasion to see an US NAVY demonstration team outside of America (last time, the Blue Angels participated in an European airshow back in 2006 in the Netherlands).
