    ATLANTIC OCEAN (Oct. 2, 2015) Two test pilots from the Pax River Integrated Test Force (ITF) at Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 23 complete carrier qualifications aboard USS Dwight D. Eisenhower during the second developmental test (DT-II) phase of the F-35C Lightning II. DT-II is the second of three at-sea test phases planned for the F-35C. During DT-I aboard USS Nimitz (CVN 68), the F-35C demonstrated exceptional performance both in the air and on the flight deck, accelerating the team’s progress through the DT-I schedule, achieving 100 percent of the threshold test points three days early and conducting night ops – an unheard of feat since the Navy’s F-4 era. Cmdr. Ted “Dutch” Dyckman flew aircraft 73/CF-03 and Cmdr. Christian “Wilson” Sewell flew aircraft 75/CF-05. (U.S. Navy Photo Courtesy Lockheed Martin Photo by Andrew McMurtrie/Released)
