Air Force’s Golden Boy F-35 Makes First Public Appearance

The USAF’s fighter from the future made its first air show flight over the weekend, wowing audiences at Andrews’ Air Force Base. Get a good look! You paid for ’em – the F-35 is the most expensive military program ever.

The Pentagon’s plan is to buy 2443 of them – prized for their stealth capabilities – from Lockheed Martin, at a cool $US323 billion. Lookin’ good, dudes. [via DefenseTech]
