New setbacks for the F-35 reported by Defensenews.com [Link]

Quote:
A fix is coming for a problem that left two F-35 pilots in ‘excruciating’ pain. Oxygen deprivation isn't the only issue known to cause physiological episodes among F-35 pilots.
Quote:
When US Navy and Marine F-35 pilots most need performance, the aircraft becomes erratic. The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps’ F-35s become unpredictable to handle when executing the kind of extreme maneuvers a pilot would use in a dogfight or while avoiding a missile. […]

Getting harder and harder for Pierre and his disciples to find things to complain about.

Not as bad as it sounds. Chinese-owned since 2013, after boards were made by Exception PCB. National firewalls apply. If the board was actually made in China by UK/US-owned company, then I would worry a lot more.
