US Air Force F-35 fighter crashes in Florida, pilot stable

A US Air Force F-35 fighter jet crashed upon landing at a base in Florida and the pilot was ejected safely. The pilot is in stable condition and there was no loss of life or damage to civilians. F-35A Lightning II is a single-seated, single-engine fighter aircraft manufactured by Lockheed Martin Corp. This accident comes days after a recent crash of an F-22 jet crashed near the base

F-35 is hot garbage. Let's work with Russia to make su-57 and keep China outside the rest of the world.

The f-35 is a fighter that can be out done in it's different roles by older planes. And it was developed in a multinational project that included China, so why did we by it? We would have been better off revamping the Tomcat with modern tech and materials and buying the upgraded Agile Falcon off our Japanese allies.

The U.S. can't provide healthcare for millions of its citizens but there is trillions for whatever submarine screen door the military complex thinks up. This is why we are doomed.

The Chair Force needs some remedial training on how to stay in their chairs.

Why would you even build a multi role plane? If it’s x times the cost to do the roles of x planes, why wouldn’t you want a fighter to do fighter stuff, a Close Air support plane to do close air support, an interceptor to intercept bombers, etc. all at the same time rather than a plane that does multiple roles but can only do a single role at any given time. Seems like a misguided idea to me.
