EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AFNS) — The F-35 Lighting II, Joint Strike Fighter started the integration phase of weapons testing 26-oct-2012, when a F-35A (CTOL-version) successfully completed the first in-flight test with an AIM-120 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile.

The program’s milestone rounded out a successful month of flight test for the program, which also included inert weapons separation tests of both the AMRAAM and Joint Direct Attack Munition. It was the first time a weapon communicated with the aircraft during flight using a data link.
