In downtown Fort Worth there’s always something going on — something to eat, do or see. But the upcoming Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl, which will take place Dec. 21, has brought a special attraction.

Through Friday, Dec. 22, a full-scale model of a F-35 Lightning II will be staged on Main Street between 8th and 9th streets. Each day, the cockpit will be open for photos from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., a F-35 pilot will be available to answer any questions and pose for photos.

According to a news release, the High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System and the robotic Squad Mission Support System will accompany the display.

Main Street between 8th and 9th streets, north of the convention center, will be closed to vehicle traffic through Dec. 22, the release stated.

This year’s Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl features the Army Black Knights and the San Diego State Aztecs. Kickoff will be at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 23 at Amon G. Carter Stadium on the Texas Christian University campus.
