— On Sunday Feb. 24, at 2 p.m., a public rally will be held for Vermont residents to share their support for basing the F-35 fighter jet at the Vermont Air National Guard station at the Burlington International Airport.

The F-35 jet was developed as three main models, the F-35A conventional takeoff, the F-35B, a "jump jet" short take off and vertical-landing version, and the F-35C aircraft carrier-based version. The F-35 grew out of the X-35 test plane, also known as the Joint Strike Fighter program.

At this weekend's rally for the F-35, there will be a show of support for the Air Guard at the Sheraton Hotel on Williston Road. Admission is free.

"We encourage as many friends and neighbors and Chapter members as possible to attend to show our support," said Richard F. Lorenz, vice president for membership and communication of the Air Guard's Green Mountain Chapter.
