Honeywell (HON) will inspect a system for managing hot and cold air in the fuselage of the F-35 following an incident on a test flight in which smoke entered the cockpit. An initial assessment shows that the event was software-related and poses minimal risk. Meanwhile, Pratt & Whitney (UTX) has received the blade assembly from an engine in a different F-35 after a crack was found, which prompted the grounding of the U.S.'s entire fleet of the planes.

    Can this get any worse for the F-35? I'm all for new tech for the military but this can't be worth it... in any way.

    Same here re: spending for the military (at least, for stuff they actually need and will use). It seems pretty ridiculous to keep spending money on something like this black hole, when there (supposedly) isn't enough money for proper training, maintenance and that sort of thing. But then, those contracts mostly aren't being chased by big $ contractors with party favors and high-paying, post-government jobs to hand out either. The F-35 program has been a mess from the start.
