F-35 Lightning IIs for Major Benjamin “Chex” Meier
I read that this year the Rose Parade Flyover was going to include two F-35s in honor of Major Meier, who passed-away, tragically. The F-35 Lightning IIs would be flown by his squadron and include the exact plane that Major Meier flew on many missions. I thought that this was really touching and hoped I'd be able to get a nice photo of them. The Rose Parade is always a bit difficult to photograph because the planes are the same color as the concrete, so they really blend in (I have a feeling that this might be intentional).
