U.S. Air Force Capt. Joseph “Sic” Scerra, an F-15C Eagle pilot assigned to the 159th Fighter Squadron, 125th Fighter Wing, Florida Air National Guard, is pictured before an F-35A Lightning II ahead of his historic flight near Luke Air Force Base, AZ, Aug. 13, 2021. Scerra is the first 159th FS pilot to complete a sortie flying an F-35A. The milestone arrived on the heels of the release of the final Environmental Impact Statement confirming Jacksonville as the next home of the F-35A Lightning II. The new aircraft will replace the legendary F-15C Eagle currently flown by the 125th Fighter Wing. (Courtesy photo)
