SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Rep. Randy Forbes was among those in attendance Tuesday as Lockheed Martin demonstrated an F-35 Lightning II.

The fighter aircraft’s interactive cockpit demonstrator will be on display at the company’s Center for Innovation. There, officials plan to ‘highlight the F-35’s role in protecting national security and the program’s economic impact across the U.S. and within Virginia.’

Those using the demonstrator will be able to ‘fly’ the aircraft in several mission scenarios.

Forbes (VA-04) was on hand at an event Tuesday.
