The Pentagon has decided to ground all F-35 jets
after a crash inspection of what might be a faulty part.
The recall came after an F-35B crashed on Sept. 28.
The F-35B is used on aircraft carriers
or unprepared landing zones.
The faulty part, a fuel pipe, might only be on old F-35
engines, but all of them are being checked.
There are 245 F-35s in the Air Force, Marine Corps,
and Navy fleets. Other countries are also checking.
No one was injured when the F-35B crashed
in South Carolina. The pilot ejected.
