Pentagon grounds F-35 planes over recent crash

2018-10-11 21:08
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.
