F-35 Flight Test Update

Lockheed Martin Logo Lockheed Martin has released a video report on the accomplishments of the F-35 Lightning II Integrated Test Force during the first quarter of 2012. While the F-35 test program has a long way to go yet, and there have been some issues uncovered that need to be resolved, they have accomplished a lot. The rate of testing seems to continue to accelerate, and it seems like the test program is past its initial troubles.

If you’re for or against the program in general, I think we can still agree the F-35 is an impressive aircraft. Hopefully it will live up to its promise. Keep in mind that a number of aircraft considered legendary today struggled during their test programs as well.
