If you recall, the 2002 Edwards open house had the F35 near the hangar door. That year it was the real thing. They even had a pilot at the display. The next time it was displayed (2003 I think), the F35 was at the back of the hangar. That year it was a mock-up. I believe the first photo you posted was the mock-up, and this photo is the real thing. In any event, I'm glad you confirmed what I knew, i.e. some of the F35 displays are fake.
