Two F-35C test aircraft have performed dual refuelling with a KC-130 for the first time.   Test aircraft CF-1 and CF-2 completed the exercise as part of a 1,000-hour flight test program scheduled for 2013.  Later this year Eglin Air Force Base will receive its first F-35C aircraft, joining the F-35 pilot and maintainer training program there.
