      F-35s Grounded

      The F-35 has suffered yet another technical failure, with another air-fleet temporarily grounded

      The U.S. military and Lockheed Martin have grounded their F-35 fleet and launched an internal investigation into the matter, after a test flight at Edwards Air Force Base led to a power failure.

      The Pentagon's F-35 Joint Program Office noted this was a precautionary move, with an unknown date on when the temporary suspension will be lifted.

      Pilots lose currency as F-22 grounding drags on

      Air Force F-22 pilots are losing their training edge as the Raptor fleet enters its fourth month of a grounding.

      The stealthy twin-engine air superiority fighters stood down May 3, after suspected problems with their oxygen systems. Air Force sources link the oxygen systems to a fatal crash last November.
