F-35s de­liv­ery on track:

Arab Times - - IN­TER­NA­TIONAL -

The Aus­tralian De­fence Force on Satur­day said its de­liv­er­ies of F-35 fighter jets from the United States were still on track, de­spite the planes be­ing grounded af­ter one of the air­craft crashed in Septem­ber.

All US and in­ter­na­tional F-35 jets made by Lock­heed Martin Corp were grounded this week so that fuel tubes could be ex­am­ined in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the crash on Sept 28 in South Carolina.

The pause in op­er­a­tions of the war­planes would not “af­fect the de­liv­ery of air­craft to Aus­tralia”, the ADF said in a state­ment, ac­cord­ing to broad­caster ABC TV.
