The exercise Northern Lightning 2017 took place at Volk Field in Wisconsin in May. Main players included Edwards F-35s, Langley F-22s and T-38s, Wisconsin F-16s, VAQ-209 Growlers and some Duluth and Sioux Falls F-16s which didn't land at Volk during my visit. Some shots:

Fantastic set. I think the Vader Growler deserves the HobbyMaster treatment :-)
