Poor supply chain is keeping F-35s grounded, government watchdog says


Recommended Posts

A shortage of spare parts and difficulty managing and moving parts around the world kept the F-35 grounded 30% of the time during an eight-month period last year, a new watchdog report found, with some training units unable to fly most of that time.

A backlog of repairs and high rates in some units of “cannibalizing” parts from other planes rather than waiting for parts to arrive also contributed to the fighter jet program’s problems, the Government Accountability Office said in a report released Thursday. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/poor-supply-chain-is-keeping-f-35s-grounded-government-watchdog-says-1.578618
