RAF's F-35 fighter 'star of the show' at Air Tattoo

The RAF and Royal Navy's new F-35B Lightning II stealth fighter will be the star of the show at the Royal International Air Tattoo at the weekend.

The event at RAF Fairford on the Gloucestershire/Wiltshire border will give engineers in Bristol's aerospace industry the chance to see the new aeroplane, which they have helped to build, in action.

The aircraft, which cost more than £70m to make, can take off and land vertically.
