According to Ms. Stefanek, the adoption of such a decision is due to the fact that the air base Eielson located relatively close to the base of the so-called United Pacific complex "Alaska". This, according to the Pentagon, will allow the F-35 to be used more effectively when conducting exercises in a vast subarctic territory.
Against this background, work continues to bring the F-35 "to the mind." The fact is that virtually every new attempt to use the latest American military aircraft leads to the identification of another flaw. The number of just discovered flaws since the United States announced the creation of the F-35 exceeded one hundred. At the same time, a step to eliminate one flaw on this aircraft often leads to the appearance of a flaw in the other and new costs, which have already made the F-35 a costly aviation project for the whole world history.
