F-35B Conducts First-Time Flyover Above White House
WASHINGTON, DC (STL.News) – A rare F-35 flyover occurred today above the White House South Lawn in Washington, D.C. today. The first-ever F-35 White House flyover was flown by a U.S. Marine Corps F-35B, from VMFAT-501, based at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, South Carolina. The flyover commemorates Polish President Andrzej Duda’s visit to the White House today.
