Six F35-A Lightning II fighter jets are now stationed at RAF Lakenheath for the next few weeks.
USAF has sent its supersonic stealth fighters all the way from Utah to Suffolk - they'll be deployed from here on European training missions.
They are the world's most advanced warplanes. They are capable of speeds of more than 1200 mph and each one is worth £100 million.
"Honoured to welcome F-35A to UK for first time. F-35 deployment will not only influence how we operate here at Lakenheath but also how our nations operate together".
USAF Gen. Tod Wolters describes F-35 as a 'game changer' with 'unmatched lethality, survivability and interoperability'.
