From Thunderbolt II Lightning

Maj. Jay Spohn of the Florida Air National Guard is the National Guard's first F-35 pilot. Spohn, who is a former member of the Arkansas Air National Guard's 188th Fighter Wing in Fort Smith, arrived at the 58th Fighter Squadron at Eglin Air Force Base this summer, and said he is ready to begin training and honing the skills it will take to master the F-35 Lighting II Joint Strike Fighter. Spohn was selected for the new position in November 2009 while still a member of the 188th. (Photo by Master Sgt. Thomas Kielbasa/Florida National Guard Public Affairs)
