F-35A fighter jets land on Finland road as part of military exercise


OSLO: A pair of F-35A Lockheed Martin fighter jets have landed on a motorway for the first time, footage from the Norwegian military showed, a step that enables them to reduce vulnerable time on the ground in times of war.

The two Royal Norwegian Air Force aircraft landed in Tervo, central Finland, on Thursday (Sep 21) afternoon as part of a military exercise.

Immediately after landing, refuelling was carried out with the engines running, a so-called “hotpit refuelling”, the Norwegian military said, before the planes took off again.
