With taiko drums beating, Lockheed Martin rolled out its first F-35 headed for Japan.

Three months ago, Japan received its first of 42 fighter jets at an unveiling ceremony held at the Fort Worth plant where the first four F-35 aircraft in the Japanese order are being constructed.

The remaining 38 aircraft will be built at Mitsubishi’s final assembly facility in Nagoya, Japan.
