F-35 Sustainment LM PR Jul 2020 PDF below: https://a855196877272cb14560-2a4fa819a6 ... inment.pdf
"Sustainment Definitions
Mission Capable (MC):
Systems and equipment are considered MC when they are safe and have all mission essential subsystems installed and operating as designated by a Military Service.

Non Mission Capable Maintenance (NMCM):
NMCM is a materiel condition indicating that systems and equipment are not capable of performing any of their assigned missions because of unit level maintenance requirements.

Non Mission Capable Supply (NMCS):
NMCS is a materiel condition indicating that systems and equipment are not capable of performing any of their assigned missions because of maintenance work stoppage due to a supply shortage.

Cannibalization Rate:
The extent to which units of the armed forces remove serviceable parts, supplies, or equipment from one aircraft in order to render a different aircraft operational. Cannibalization is practiced when it is faster to remove a needed part from one aircraft and install it in another than to obtain that part from the supply system."

Had to check what the "Fast Facts" told us a year ago. Then there was 420+ aircraft delivered (now 555+). Year ago flight hours were 205,000 meaning 104,000 flight hours a year for about 500 F-35s. That's pretty good at this stage of the project as that's over 200 flight hours for each one on average. Year ago there were 850+ pilots and 8,120 maintainers, so their number also increased very well.

Oh man that is some death spiral... :mrgreen:

Most deliveries in the year don't get the full year flight hours. 2019 saw the most number delivered yet so its logical 2020 sees a significant up in the flight hours.

Noted USAF F-35As itself logged 96,313 cumulative flight hours up to end FY 2019 (8 years of flight). I'm not surprised if it adds 30-40+k hours to that number just this year alone. In contrast, the F-22s log ~30k hours a year so its another milestone. The F-35As are now flying more than the F-22s.
