Pentagon grounds all F-35 fighter jets following crash — latest issue for costly program


Recommended Posts

The U.S. Navy, Air Force and Marines — as well as 11 international partners who participated in the program — grounded all F-35 fighters on Thursday as part of an ongoing investigation into a jet that crashed in Beaufort, South Carolina, late last month.

A Navy aircraft mishap board is charged with overseeing the investigation, and they will be conducting a fleet-wide inspection of a fuel tube inside the engine of the F-35 aircraft, according to military officials. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/pentagon-grounds-all-f-35-fighter-jets-following-crash-latest-n919311

      SAN DIEGO – U.S. Navy Captain (Retired) David Williams Haas was sentenced today to 30 months in prison by a federal district judge in San Diego on charges that he received more than $90,000 in bribes from foreign defense contractor Leonard Francis, who plied him with luxurious hotel stays, travel, and prostitutes.  Haas was also ordered to pay a criminal fine of $30,000 and restitution in the amount of $90,968.82.

      A massive spy balloon believed to be from China was seen above Montana on Thursday and is being tracked as it flies across the continental United States, with President Joe Biden ultimately deciding against "military options" because of the risk to civilians, U.S. officials said on Thursday. The high-altitude reconnaissance balloon was not the first such vessel to pass over the country in this way, a defense official said in a briefing.
