    The last 30 seconds of the crash event in pictorial form. Based on facts as evident in the last 30 secs, a number of factors were progressively ruled out such as hypoxia, G-LOC, and plane malfunction which lead to the conclusion of spatial disorientation.

    I'm not a pilot or anything, but wouldn't his HMD give enough info to show that he should probably pullup?

    All planes should have that. Same with cars. The technology is fully capable.

    A string of articles have hit the news wire over at Defense News reporting on a bunch of problems with the F-35, some of which have never been reported before.

    There are too many articles to post individually.

    Link attached.

    This one seems a good Omnibus of the issues.
    https://www.defensenews.com/air/201...lock-to-fix-serious-unreported-f-35-problems/
    1 and 2 are known. Jura has posted a number of times issues with ALIS.
    Issues 3is new but not surprising as there have been issues of that in other fighters lately.
    Issue 4 is new.
    Issue 5 is new. It must be an issue with the Naval coatings as A isn’t listed with the problem.
    Issue 6 seems like an issue unique to C
    Issue 7 is new.
    Issue 8 and issue 9 are known. Last I heard a fix was coming in the next helmet.
    10 is new.
    11 is unique to older blocks.

    wondering if DefenseNews changed the owner perhaps?

    no more malarkey like 'sensor fusion', 'situational awareness', 'game changer', 'kill ratios', I ask why?

    instead for example
    When US Navy and Marine F-35 pilots most need performance, the aircraft becomes erratic https://www.defensenews.com/smr/hid...eed-performance-the-aircraft-becomes-erratic/

    hard to believe only now they noticed at DefenseNews F-35 = flying brick

    I've said this a hundred times and got a hundred arguments for but this Turkey of a Bird Needs Cancelled just like the Zummies And 22 were it can never do all of the jobs it's supposed to this lesson should have been learned with the much Vaunted F111 project in the 60s
