Cool Photos Of F-22s And F-35s Flying Together For The First Time

Behold the F-22 Raptor (top two) and F-35 Lightning II (bottom two) flying together for the first time in history. Arguably the two most technologically advanced military jets in the world, the Lt. Col. Matt Renbarger — commander of the 58th Fighter Squadron — says they mix together like peanut butter and jelly.

Video: F-35 Lands On An Aircraft Carrier For The First Time Ever

The US Navy variant of the F -35 Lightning II has landed aboard an aircraft carrier for the first time ever. This arrested landing by Navy test pilot Cmdr. Tony Wilson on the USS Nimitz marks a new two-week period of testing at sea. Watch it from multiple angles:


Say What You Want About It, But This Aeroplane Still Looks Like It's From The Future

Briefly: Sure, it has had lots of problems. Yes, it is expensive as hell. But you can’t deny that the F-35 is one handsome bastard. It still feels from the future in these pictures that Lockheed Martin just sent me.


All US And UK F-35s Are Being Grounded (Again) Because Of Engine Fires

Military officials from both the US and UK have been forced to ground each and every F-35 in their fleets so that their engines can be inspected — following another fire last week. By our count, this will be the eighth time the entire fleet has had to be been grounded — although it’s hard to keep accurate tallies given it happens practically all the time.


The F-35 Fleet Was Grounded Again For The Bajillionth Time

The Pentagon grounded its very expensive and very problematic F-35 fleet over the weekend due to an apparent engine oil leak. Within a day or so, the US military inspected all 104 of the jets, three of which did not pass the tests. The rest are now back in the air.


Is The F-35 Fighter Jet That Australia Is Buying Actually Worth It?

The US military’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft is proving to be a pain in the neck in more ways than one. An expose from CBS News looks at the extent of the program’s many delays and cost over-runs.


Australia To Boost Joint Strike Fighter Order To 72 Aircraft: A Brief History Of The Troubled F-35 Program

According to several reports, Prime Minister Tony Abbott will today formally announce that Australia will buy 58 more F-35 Joint Strike fighters — bringing the planned F-35 fleet to 72 aircraft in total. The first Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is slated for delivery in 2018 ahead of RAAF operation in 2020. But as technically advanced as the stealthy 5th-gen F-35 is, the program has also had its fair share of ups and downs. Let’s take a brief look…


The Insanely Expensive F-35 Is Delayed Again, For Australia Too

A United States Government report reveals that the F-35 will be delayed yet again. This time, the problem is stalled software development. It’s just the latest in a long line of delays and problems. Australia’s F-35 order, for at least 14 jets, is looking more and more like throwing money into the wind.


The Only Thing Keeping The F-35 Lightning Relevant Is The F-22 Raptor

Even if they are primarily just cheap knockoffs, China’s rapidly growing fleet of next-gen aircraft are poised to seriously challenge American air superiority in the coming years. To prevent that, argues Chief of US Air Force Air Command Command Gen. Michael Hostage, the US will need plenty of fifth-generation fighters of its own — no matter the cost.
