Wreckage of a previously crashed F-35 fighter found in the United States
Reports are coming from the United States regarding an F-35 fighter jet that recently disappeared during a training flight. According to the American TV channel ABC News, the wreckage of this plane was found in Williamsburg County, South Carolina.
Let us recall that last Sunday it was reported that an F-35B fighter jet, taking off from the Charleston Air Force Base, located in the same state, suffered an accident in the skies over South Carolina. The fighter pilot successfully ejected and was hospitalized. According to the US Marine Corps, the crashed F-35B was part of the 501st Fighter Training Squadron, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing.
The plane's wreckage was found in an area about two hours northeast of Charleston.
The F-35B fighter was created for the US Marine Corps and passed its tests in 2011. The main distinguishing feature of this combat aircraft is the possibility of short takeoff and vertical landing.
It should be noted that for its relatively small history these fighters suffered accidents many times. One of the most recent accidents occurred last December when an F-35B hit the runway at Fort Worth Air Force Base in Texas while attempting a vertical landing.
