Lightnings and Fire Parte II (ma anche SI!)
I grillini evidentemente portano sfiga. Dopo la gaffe del Sukhoi T-50, eccoci (ahinoi) alle prese con un _vero_ F-35 in fiamme. L’incidente e’ capitato oggi alla base aerea di Eglin (Florida) nel corso di un volo di addestramento.
Dalla breaking news di USNI.org:
A Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter was severely damaged — possibly destroyed — in a Monday morning fire on the runway at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., USNI News learned.
No injuries were reported and officials have begun an investigation into the incident, defense officials told USNI News on Monday.
“The aircraft was preparing to conduct a continuation training mission at the time of the incident, but aborted during takeoff at Eglin Air Force Base due to a fire in the back end of the aircraft,” according to a Monday statement provided to USNI News from the Air Force.
“Emergency responders extinguished the fire with foam.”
E ora attendiamo la shitstorm con l’ombrellone in mano 🙂
