I have been following this story for some time, and, finally, enough time has passed for me to consider this story worth noting. The Japanese recently lost an American-made, top-of-the-line stealth F-36 Fighter, with all the fat tech aboard that grand prize for anyone who finds it. The plane has been missing for over a month and now the military, the US Military, is reassuring us everything gone be fine, which is exactly when you should pay more attention.
From NewsRep – Earlier this month, an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter belonging to the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force went down over the Pacific during a training flight. Three other F-35s participating in the flight returned home safely, with the pilot and much of the missing F-35’s wreckage, still missing. “The Japanese have the lead there, and we’re working very collaboratively with them,” acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Friday. “And we’ve got a capability if what they have doesn’t prove to be sufficient.”
