F-35 Lightning II Program Surpasses 10,000 Flight Hours 10 Oct 2013
"FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 9, 2013 - The Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] F-35 Lightning II program continues its operational maturation, surpassing 10,000 flight hours in September. More than half of the total hours were accumulated in just the past 11 months. Through September, F-35s flew 6,492 times for a total of 10,077 flight hours. The new milestone effectively doubles the safe flight operations of the F-35 in a year, compared to reaching 5,000 flight hours in six years...."

Gee, isn't this like half the total flight hours Sprey was claiming would be under the JSFs belt by the time is was fielded in Burlington VT when he was speaking at that hippie rally up there a couple of months ago?

Its Good News, with a positive title. Worth keeping at the top of the list for a while.
