The F-35B might not make to the Fornborough Air Show as one of the four fighters remains on the ground at Elgin, Florida.

The other three F-35Bs have arrived at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland, the departure point for their historic Atlantic crossing to the United Kingdom.

All four F-35Bs are due at RAF Fairford in England the week of July 7 at the latest to allow pilots time for verification flights for their displays at the Royal International Tattoo and Farnborough air show this month.

Turnaround time of 36-hours on the ground at Patuxent River upon arrival from Eglin, it is unlikely that the F-35B will make an appearance at the naming ceremony for the HMS Queen Elizabeth on July 4 in the U.K. reported AviationWeek.
