F-35B Cleared For Takeoff

F-35-jetFlight operations of the F-35B fighter jet will resume. Locally, this means that an F-35B slated for delivery last month to the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma will now happen. 

The jets had been grounded nationwide since the flight clearance was cancelled after a January test flight was aborted due to a fuelduralic hose failure. 

The three jets have sat on the tarmac at MCAS since that time.  It is expected the fourth jet will be delivered to MCAS within the next ten days.
