US F-35 fighter jet to miss date at Britain's Farnborough

A F-35B test aircraft completes the first aerial weapons release of an inert 500-pound GBU-12 on December 3, 2012The new US-built F-35 stealth fighter jet will not appear as planned at Britain’s Farnborough air show on Monday but may still take part at the end of the week, organisers said. The entire fleet of F-35s, set to become the backbone of much of the air defences of several Western countries, was grounded in the United States last week because of an engine fire. “Unfortunately the F-35B Lightning II will not be displaying at the Farnborough International Airshow tomorrow, Monday 14 July,” the organisers said in a statement. “The aircraft is still awaiting US DoD (Department of Defense) clearance but we are hopeful that it will fly at the airshow by the end of the week.”
