Wreckage of Japanese F-35 fighter found
    2019-04-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SEARCH and rescue teams found wreckage belonging to a Japanese Lockheed Martin F-35 stealth fighter that disappeared Tuesday over the Pacific Ocean close to northern Japan, a military spokesman said yesterday.

The pilot of the aircraft is still missing, said the Air Self Defense Force (ASDF) spokesman.

“We recovered the wreckage and determined it was from the F-35,” the spokesman told reporters.

The F-35 was less than a year old and was delivered to the ASDF in May last year, he added.

Japan’s first squadron of F-35s has just become operational at the Misawa air base and the government plans to buy 87 of the stealth fighters to modernize its air defenses.

The advanced single-seat jet was flying about 135 km east of the air base in Aomori Prefecture at about 7:27 p.m. Tuesday, when it disappeared from radar, the Air Self Defense Force said.

Lockheed Martin said in a statement that it was standing by to support the Japanese Air Self Defense Force as needed.

The Pentagon said it was monitoring the situation.

The crash was only the second time an F-35 has gone down since the plane began flying almost two decades ago.

It was also the first crash of an A version of the fifth-generation fighter designed to penetrate enemy defenses by evading radar detection.

A U.S. military short take off and landing (STOVL) F-35B crashed near the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in South Carolina in September prompting a temporary grounding of the aircraft.

Lockheed Martin also makes a C version of the fighter designed to operate off carriers.

Japan’s new F-35s will include 18 short take off and vertical landing (STOVL) B variants that planners want to deploy on its islands along the edge of the East China Sea.

The F-35s are shipped to Japan by Lockheed Martin and assembled by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. at a plant near Nagoya in Japan. (SD-Agencies)
