U.S. grounds the F-35

|By:, SA News Editor

The U.S. military has grounded its entire fleet of Lockheed Martin (LMT) F-35 fighter jets, until additional inspections are conducted on the warplane's engine manufactured by Pratt & Whitney (UTX).

It was reported yesterday that U.S. and British authorities were looking into requiring mandatory inspections on the F-35, after an engine caught fire in Florida last week.
