      Two crows are sitting at the air base on a tree.
      Watch the flight of the F-35.

      One another says: "It flies well." Second: "Now it will fall."
      - "No, it won't fall!"
      - "Will fall!"

      F-35 lights up and falls. Crashes.

      The crow says to his companion: "Well, that's it!"

      - "I serve Russia!"

And for me they are subject to interpretation as the actions of a person with a narrow-minded mind. hi and I did not understand what the "holiness" is. But the fact that I am glad when something crashed at the Naglasax, yes. And I do not hide this, otherwise they can be happy when we bend, and what should we not?

All aviation was built on "blood", because the Earth's gravity exists.

          Alexey, we have already discussed this topic. Neither you nor I have real statistics on the operation of the F-35. You cited statistics - the aircraft manufacturer! And this is not the statistics of the "operator", but the PR of their products. And they can be understood, they have launched a series of "something raw" for ten years, they have brought it into production for ten years, they have driven hundreds of billions, and that
          now - "all down the drain" ?! Of course not ! Who, who, but not the Americans. They came up with it - advertising is a lever of trade.
          And second - the true know-how in military technologies, the countries of the manufacturer keep secret until its "preferential status",
          as soon as it loses its advanced functions, it begins to be declassified and even sold. Or they sell it initially, but in a "stripped down" version. The F-35 situation breaks all stereotypes. The plane, completely "raw", was put into series, riveted hundreds, constantly
          modifying during ten years of operation. But most importantly, they have been “raw material” for all ten years, brazenly “forcing their allies” for crazy money, beating off their unjustified costs.
          I am sure that in the 22nd century in aviation circles, they will recall the F-35 as the most ambitious scam of the US military-industrial complex.

            I talked about disasters. When the plane crashes and crashes.
            There are exactly three of them. One pilot died, Japanese.
            With over 500 aircraft operating in 10 countries,
            it is very small. For comparison, the F-16, the most popular aircraft
            contemporaneity, disasters were (in relation to released) 20 times
            more. And no one called the F-16 a raw and failed project
            or a scam.
            So, your whole post is emotions that are not backed up by statistics.
            Israel is ready to receive all 100 aircraft that are planned
            to acquire, at least at once - today. But, unfortunately, this is not possible.

        and in no military operations not involved

        The United States used F-35A fighters in combat conditions. April 30, two aircraft took part in combat Operation Unshakable Determination in Iraq. Fighters hit a tunnel network in the Hamrin Mountains used by Islamic State militants
        The engineers of the American concern have already begun to improve the tactical and technical properties of the F-35, taking into account combat Israeli Air Force experience.
        If you have a desire, I will write to you how many aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces do not have time to participate in military operations landed and splashed down. Reset speed, otherwise it will jam laughing

    The plane is new, "raw", but there are MORE of them!
    It is quite natural.

      Yes, it’s not particularly new anymore .. It is already being pulled in by its USA vassals!
      But there are no sorties .. He’s been invisible for a long time, the S-400 Turks tested it and Erdogan turned off the production of the F-35 part at home))))
      And he sent Trump ..)))

        Schaub, we or someone else who didn’t say, but the Yankees are driving a NEW ROAD !!! When / if they bring this technique to mind, they will create the appropriate infrastructure !!! the plane will not fly better than it is laid in, BUT, they will have not a small backlog on the way to creating a NEW, more advanced technique. To the new tactics of conducting air battles of a NEW TYPE!
        so sho can say ... who did not succeed, that slippers can not see! And this is serious, we can’t ignore this in our plans if we want to be STRONGER, MORE, ABOVE! Those. SLEEP QUIET, without fear of anyone.

    Apparently higher powers began to intervene heavily in the process this leap year. Even summer really cannot come. Planes are falling, the economy is falling, precipitation is falling, oil is falling. Continuous falls. There is still this pandemic.

    Recall physics. The angle of reflection is equal to the angle of incidence. There is hope, it will work not only in physics!

      People fly, happen to fall. I don’t see a reason to worry or rejoice - any reason for this fall is a headache for amers and partners in the program: let their public worry.

    Well, only those fighters that do not fly do not fall .... the question is in the reasons ... if not system ones (like strangulation of pilots in the F-22, which they could not overcome for years), then we have no reason to rejoice :)

    Usually such events are paired.

    That's for sure, nobody canceled the law of pairing.

    Tangled F35 aircraft ...?

    Too much concentration of diverse high-tech in one product could not but affect. I do not see any reason for joy or malice - each new product is a long and dangerous path and the force majeure that accompanies it.

      Well, it’s definitely not worth crediting in reliable F-35s. But the news is Pleasant for Russia, those who served and are serving! hi

    Most likely, their engines were bought on ali express in China, so the resource was worked out hi
    But seriously, the regular pilots, I suspect, know that the United States wants to make a small bad boom simply, for those reasons in the controls that they had not previously paid attention to, they decided to pay attention and voila, the plane crashed lol by itself, equipment failure am

    Where does the committee of American mothers look? Why should their boys fly on this? Let them make a new plane - this one is no good, we must honestly admit it. Well, Poland can be sold, Japan is there, but it’s necessary to do something else for yourself - and do not spare money, just like rogues!
