Τεχνικά προβλήματα σε μαχητικά αεροσκάφη των ΗΠΑ (τύπου F-35)

..... Στο έδαφος θα παραμείνουν τα μαχητικά αεροσκάφη του Πολεμικού Ναυτικού των ΗΠΑ, τύπου F-35 -μοντέλα B και C- τα οποία έχουν κατασκευαστεί από την εταιρεία Lockheed Martin Corp., δεδομένου ότι παραμένουν ασαφή τα αίτια που προκάλεσαν μια τεράστια βλάβη στον κινητήρα ενός F-35 της Πολεμικής Αεροπορίας στις 23 Ιουνίου.

«Αυτή τη στιγμή δεν διαθέτω επαρκείς πληροφορίες ώστε να επιτραπούν οι πτήσεις στα F-35B και F-35C», δήλωσε στο πρακτορείο Reuters ο αντιναύαρχος, Ντέιβιντ Ντάναγουεϊ. «Δεν υπάρχει κάποιο συγκεκριμένο γεγονός που να δικαιολογεί την αιτία».

The U.S. Navy on Friday maintained a grounding order for F-35 B-model and C-model fighter jets built by Lockheed Martin Corp, saying it was still not clear what caused a massive engine failure on an Air Force F-35 jet on June 23.
"At this time, I do not have sufficient information to return the F-35B and F-35C fleet to flight," Vice Admiral David Dunaway, who heads the Navy's Air Systems Command, said in an update to a fleetwide grounding order issued by U.S. officials on July 3. A copy of the document was obtained by Reuters.

Dunaway said in the document that he was committed to returning the F-35 fleet to flight as soon as possible, but there was "no discernible event that represents a root cause."

Ce que nous coûte la « liberté » OTAN

« La situation en Ukraine nous rappelle que notre liberté n’est pas gratuite et nous devons être prêts à payer» : c’est ce qu’a rappelé le président Obama, à Rome comme à Bruxelles, en se disant préoccupé que certains pays OTAN veuillent diminuer leur propre dépense militaire. La semaine prochaine, a-t-il annoncé, se réuniront à Bruxelles les ministres des affaires étrangères pour renforcer la présence OTAN en Europe orientale et aider l’Ukraine à moderniser ses forces militaires. Cela requerra des ajouts de crédits. Nous sommes donc prévenus ; et on nous parle de coupe dans la dépense militaire!
