View a Lockheed F-35 scale model downtown

Downtown Fort Worth is always abuzz with activity, but the upcoming Armed Forces Bowl brings a special attraction.

Through Friday, a full-scale model of a F-35 Lightning II will be staged 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.

The High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System and the robotic Squad Mission Support System will accompany the display.

Main Street between Eighth and Ninth streets, north of the Fort Worth Convention Center, will be closed to vehicle traffic through Dec. 22.

This year’s Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl pits the Army Black Knights against the San Diego State Aztecs at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 23 at Amon G. Carter Stadium on the TCU campus.
