Santa, your sleigh is so slow. Fort Worth has an F-35 for kids to pose in

🕐 1 min read

Tired of taking the kids to sit in Santa’s lap and snap a photo? How about bringing the kids to something much faster than the chief elf’s sleigh? How about a Lockheed Martin F-35?

Between Dec. 19-22, a full-scale model of an F-35 Lightning II will be located on Main Street between Eighth and Ninth streets. The cockpit will be open for photos each day from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. From 11 a.m.-1 p.m. each day, a F-35 pilot will be available to answer questions and pose for photos.

Main Street between Eighth and Ninth streets, north of the Fort Worth Convention Center, will be closed to vehicle traffic Dec. 19-23.

On Wednesday, Dec. 21, Lockheed Martin will present a $315,000 donation to the United Way of Tarrant County’s Veterans Fund as part of Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl Week at the location.

This year’s Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl pits the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs against the Navy Midshipmen at 3:30 p.m. Dec. 23 at Amon G. Carter Stadium on the TCU campus.

The 14th edition of the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl will be played Friday, Dec. 23, at TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. This year’s game will again be televised nationally on ESPN and also will be aired in both English and Spanish on the Armed Forces Bowl Radio Network.
