SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A new specialty aircraft touched down in San Diego for the first time.
The Third Marine Aircraft Wing F-35B joint strike fighter made its first landing at MCAS Miramar during a training flight Tuesday. It's stationed at MCAS Yuma in Arizona.
Pilots say the aircraft is a marked improvement on all levels from what they've flown in the past.
Officials say it is still a few years away from being combat-ready.
