Comment(s):

Prior to the start of operational test at Eglin AFB, Florida both F-001 and F-002 were temporarily grounded after their delivery. 323 squadron was reactivated at Eglin AFB on November 23, 2014 as 323 TES (Test and Evaluation Squadron).

The aircraft built in Italy (F-009 onwards) will be delivered to Leeuwarden. This includes the first aircraft to be based at Volkel. These will be transferred to the base in Noord Brabant at a later stage.

Planned delivery schedule 2020 onwards:

Delivery year Number
<= 2019 10
2020 5
2021 8
2022 10
2023 7
2024 6
   
Total 46

The delivery schedule was affected in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally 7 or 8 F-35A's should have been delivered.
